It's a new year and the Polson Police Department posted on their Facebook page a great list of resources for guidance through substance abuse.

The department says their policing philosophy is 'you are not the problem', but rather a 'person with a problem.'

They want to help by posting these resources before it gets worse.

They've compiled a list of resources from websites, email addresses, to phone numbers and we've got them on our website.
