To advance substance free prevention efforts in Montmorency County
The Montmorency County Substance Free Coalition was established in January of 2017, following five murder-suicides all directly related to Substance misuse and mental health issues. An anonymous donor jump started our efforts with a small $5000 donation to be used to enhance prevention education efforts, access to treatment and reduction of stigma. Our group has been working diligently to ensure involvement by all 12 community sectors and currently have the following sectors actively participating in leading our efforts with this coalition (Mental Health, Domestic Violence, Medical, Treatment, Faith based, Law Enforcement, Government officials, Prevention, Public Health, Community service organizations, MSUE and Business representatives)
One of our primary missions of the coalition is to advance access and services to our residents to prevention, reduction of stigma, treatment and recovery. To accomplish these efforts we will follow evidence based practices (best practices) to improve our community’s over health ( physically and mentally).
Six years after our meager beginnings, the state wants to ensure our efforts continue and grow. Beginning January of 2023 Montmorency County will be participating in a MI-PAC program which will focus efforts on community strategic planning and the development and implementation of the findings to provide programming to all sectors of the community.

One of the coalition efforts was bringing in motivational speakers: Michigan Youth Alive to work with our High School youth.
