School-Based Prevention Programs
An experienced, well-trained staff of health educators, certified addictions counselors and prevention specialists provide school and community-based substance abuse prevention programs. Staff members offer three research-based Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration, SAMHSA-approved education programs. The Michigan Model curriculum is used in elementary schools. Life Skills is offered to middle school students. High school students participate in a program called Toward No Drug Abuse. In addition, staff are available to meet individually with students struggling with their own substance use or that of a friend or family member.
