About Lifeways
We exist to:

  •  connect and empower youth to discover and pursue what they truly love to do,
  •  so they have a reason to "say no" to alcohol and drugs' artifical high. 
  •  rather than "say no" they will say "I know!"

Lifeways provides alcohol and drug prevention, intervention and outpatient counseling services in Rapid City, Hill City and Custer middle and high schools. 

We reach out to the community to:

  • create a positive and healthy environment to raise children and teenagers,
  • work with youth in order to greatly improve their lives: Healthy, Happy, Productive!

RETHINK ONE OF THE GREATEST PUBLIC HEALTH CHALLENGES OF OUR TIME

  • Nine out of 10 people who are addicted became addicted before the age of 18
  • Cost of drug abuse exceeds $400 Billion dollars per year
  • Every day drugs kill 365 Americans

How can you help?
