Become a Member

National programs combined with local efforts are vital to changing attitudes, educating individuals and effectively changing behavior around substance use disorder. Becoming a member of the Council will enable your agency to participate in life changing evidence-based programs and strategies that align with the Comprehensive Community Plan for Porter County.

Members are also able to access annual community funds that assist with addressing underage drinking; marijuana use; and opioid/heroin prevention, treatment and recovery best practices. In 2017, we were able to disburse $164,000.00 to agencies providing evidence-based initiatives to member agencies.

There is no cost for individual or organizational memberships, just a willingness to participate in strategies to reduce substance use disorder in our community and network with others that have the same goals. Join the 125 dedicated members by attending the next coalition meeting to learn what you can do to help!

Scroll through the website and see what we have accomplished and what we have yet to do. You can make a difference in your community by supporting the lead agency addressing substance abuse issues since 1989.
