About Remedy Exchange

Remedy Exchange, Inc. established in 2013 is a licensed substance abuse prevention program in the State of Michigan designed to help individuals and communities make positive lifestyle choices. The focus of our work is centered around the Strategic Prevention Framework and a Positive Community Norms approach. Both of these frameworks lay the foundation for the programs and services offered by Remedy Exchange. We work effectively with individuals and small groups, guiding them through a variety of educational, skill building, and intervention strategies to reduce high risk choices around alcohol, marijuana and other substance use. Community-based strategies address perception of risk, access and social norms related to substance abuse among youth and adults.
