Substance Abuse Prevention
We educate the public on the damaging effects of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Our staff visit area schools, community organizations and public events, presenting substance abuse facts in an enlightening and engaging format.
Our programming is available to:
- Community groups and agencies

Helping Services believes that education plays an important part in getting individuals to make healthy choices about alcohol, tobacco, and drug use. These choices may mean quitting smoking, choosing not to drink, and not participating in illegal drug use. Prevention is the key.
Helping Services does not offer treatment services (we do promote Quitline Iowa to stop smoking). If you or a loved one are seeking assistance in breaking a drug addiction, please refer to our Resources page to locate an agency that focuses on treatment of drug addictions. Please refer to our list of services that we do offer the public.
