"We're not solving problems for people, instead we're helping
them to solve their own problems," explains Elizabeth Saviano,
a Drug Help staff worker.
Drug Help (761-HELP) is a community service organization
which operates a 24-hour crisis phone line staffed by trained
personnel who can also go out on house calls to deal with prob-
lems that can't be handled over the telephone.
THE GROUP is one of a loose coalition of three community
organizations which coiprise the William St. Community Center,
located at 621. E. William St. The other two groups are Ozone
House and the Community Project.
Although Drug Help was established five years ago pri-
marily to deal with drug use and abuse problems, its main func-
tion today, according to Saviaoo, is counseling. The group con-
ducts short and- long term drug counseling for families and
The staff consists of about 60 unpaid volunteers and six paid
members and at least two workers are on duty 24 hours per day.
All staffers go through 60 hours of training before they are
placed on duty, including instruction in first aid, overdose prob-
lems, and crisis counseling.
AMBULANCE SERVICES are. available but most medical
cases are referred to hospitals and the Free People's Clinic.
Ozone House is aonther service organizati >n which offers its
counseling services mainly to runaways. Like Drug Help, it is
staffed primarily by trained volunteers and severail paid workers.
"Basically, we're an alternative agency, we're not so lkely
to be distributed by runways as would another organization, like
the Department of Social Services," says Ozone House worker
"WE TRY TO BE on the side of the youth, by counseling on
a human level," he explains.
Family counseling sessions may attempt to reunite familiesE
when this seems to be the solution. If, however, the problems
-an't be resolved, Ozone House can arrange for temporary or
permanent foster house placement.
According to Bates, most of the runaways who come to the
Ozone House office (which is open from 10 am. to 1 a.m.) are
between the ages of 14 and 17 and are from the Washtenaw
THE COMMUNITY Center Project, newest of the three organ-
izations at the William St. Center, includes several educational
and informational programs such as the Ride Switchboard and
the Community Switchboard.
Both groups can be reached anytime between 10 a.m. and
10 p.m. by dialing ONE-1111.
Community Switchboard provides information on .community
organizations and happenings. The switchboard collects and up-
dates information on cultural events, community services and
food and vegetable co-ops.
The Ride Switchboard maintains a list of those persons
wishing to obtain rides out-of-town and as well as those offering
