Be The Solution is a program of the Northern Michigan Regional Entity. Our mission is to increase public awareness of the risks and potential harm associated with misuse of substances in Northern Michigan. The Drug Free Northern Michigan Coalition Alliance supports the Be the Solution campaign and helps to guide regional prevention and recovery efforts. Across the region our members include individuals and groups from schools, community agencies, law enforcement, community members, peer recovery coaches, coalitions, health departments, treatment and prevention providers and individuals in recovery. Please consider joining the Coalition to help create a strong voice and message across the region for prevention and recovery.
