Thank you for visiting to learn more about what we do and why we are here. Butte Cares is here to support the Butte community, in particular, our youth. Substance use among our young people as well as adults, continues to adversely affect where we live, work and play. In working together, we can build a safe, healthy, and drug-free community.
Our Prevention work has grown to include 9 counties that have Prevention Specialists working in them to improve the health, safety, and well-being of our youth in Southwest Montana. These counties are all apart of Southwest Montana Prevention and include Beaverhead, Deer Lodge, Gallatin, Jefferson, Lewis and Clark, Madison, Park, Powell, and Silver Bow. To learn more about what is going on in your community and to find the contact information of the local Prevention Specialist in your area, click on your county in the Community Work drop down menu.
