The Healthy Communities Initiative (HCI) was founded in 2003. The goal of the HCI is to reduce and prevent alcohol and other drug misuse among all populations in Burt, Cuming, Madison and Stanton Counties.
Our mission is to educate and support activities which focus on reducing and preventing alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse and misuse in Burt, Cuming, Madison and Stanton Counties.
HCI is receives grant funding from the following sources:
Drug Free Communities
Region 4 Behavioral Health Systems
Provided through HCI, RBST (Responsible Beverage Service training) is a useful tool for any business that serves or sells alcohol. Courses provide information and skills training that are specific to your job while providing benefits like reduced vulnerability to lawsuits and lower insurance premiums. Training can help sellers and servers spot underage drinkers and competently handle confrontation with intoxicated patrons.
