The group serves to educate
the community on drug use, aid
drug users on bad trips, and re-
fer to other agencies those peo-
ple with problems which Drug
Help cannot handle.
A 24-hour, walk-in center at
900 Lincoln serves as a source of
information for people curious
about drugs. The organization
has also conducted drug educa-
tion programs for University
dormitories, local civic groups,
and high schools throughout
Drug H e 1 p handles crises
through a 24-hour telephone
service, as well as through the
walk-in center. People with
drug problems can either call or
directly seek assistance from the
trained personnel at the center.
The center will send people to
aid someone experiencing a drug
crisis, or may send that person
to a hospital.
Drug Help has also set up drug
crisis treatment centers at pop-
festivals across the country.
University Hospital has co-
operated with the center in
helping with drug problems.
says Steve Schwartz, D r u g
Help's founder. Schwartz says
medical students a n d doctors
are among the volunteers who
staff the center.
Drug Help has been operat-
ing since April. The service was
originated by the psychology de-
partment in conjunction with
the Office of Student Services.
In order to seek financial sup-
port f r o m the community,
Schwartz says, Drug Help was
incorporated in July.
According to Schwartz, the
Ann Arbor Kiwanis Club has
served as a primary source of
financial support for the group.
Drug Help presently has an ap-
proximate $10-15,000 budget for
In addition a grant of $2,000
to Drug Help has been author-
ized by trustees of the Ann Ar-
bor Area Foundation. The foun-
dation funds have been desig-
nated to assist in rental expens-
es for the walk-in clinic.
Schwartz n o te s the use of
Drug Help services has steadily
increased since it opened and he
expects this trend to continue.
Schwartz adds he wants Drug
Help to be able to increase its
services in the future, especial-
ly in establishing a legal means
of testing illegal drugs and in
