Now offering Substance Use Prevention Education!
Coming in March- A ten (10) week educational program designed to increase effective action and manage psychological distress relating to substance use. Participants will learn information and develop new skills through a combination of educational presentations and therapeutic group activities. At the start of the program, each participant will identify their personal goal relating to substance use prevention and develop an individualized plan to meet their objectives throughout the sessions. This open group will naturally serve as a peer support circle which addresses common struggles while generating healthy solutions to the problems young people are facing.
