How to Help

Volunteer Support

All Dartmouth-associated persons who are committed to addressing substance use, addiction, and recovery issues in society are invited to join DCARE in its mission. Please contact DCARE at (603) 646-9215 or dcare@dartmouth.edu to learn how you can volunteer to make a difference.

Fiscal Support

DCARE was initially supported by three years of seed funding from Dartmouth's Office of the Provost. The success of DCARE and its programs is founded upon this commitment from the Office of the Provost and the ongoing dedication and service of Dartmouth Alumni and other volunteers. We are immeasurably grateful. We now rely on additional financial support from Alumni and others that makes possible the continuation of the Center's important work.

Experts agree that the development of model alcohol, tobacco and other drug programs requires a long-term investment, implementation of evidence-based and scientifically evaluated programs, and support from key leadership.

DCARE associates continue to seek federal and private foundation funding to support its service and research programs in alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. While these grants will support specific projects, they will not support the infrastructure of the Center itself. Most funding agencies are attracted by research investigations. DCARE, distinct from other academic substance-related centers, is instead primarily focused on services and programs offering direct help to those who need it.

To support these programs and services and ensure the continued viability of DCARE by direct financial support, contributions can be made to:

Dartmouth Center on Addiction, Recovery and Education
7764 Parker House
Hanover, New Hampshire 03755
(603) 646-9215

Contributions may also be submitted to:

Mary-Ella Zietz, Assistant Provost

6004 Parkhurst Hall, Room 204
Hanover, New Hampshire, 03755
(603) 646-2404

You can also support these programs and services with contributions of time through assistance in a variety of ways, including mentoring, translating, researching and writing. For more information on this, contact DCARE@Dartmouth.EDU or call (603) 646-9215.

All donations are welcome and accepted with gratitude. Questions about endowments or funding specific projects or initiatives can be directed to Dr. Savage (at DCARE: 603-646-9215 or Seddon.R.Savage@Dartmouth.EDU).
