Student Assistance Program (SAP) Services for Youth
We partner with schools, families, communities and other organizations to provide customizable prevention programs for drugs, alcohol and nicotine.
Preparing Youth to Thrive
Today’s youth face many challenges. More often than not, they need help when it comes to finding and taking the right path. In response, we’ve developed several programs to help students reach their potential and equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to overcome life’s obstacles in a healthy, substance-free way. Programs and services can be offered in person or through virtual platforms.
Caron SAP provides behavioral health assessments for students in grades five through twelve. During one-on-one meetings, Caron SAP Specialists interview students to identify substance use related problems, mental health issues, and other factors that could negatively affect a young person’s life. Upon completing the comprehensive assessment, specialists make recommendations and help students implement them.
Recommendations are confidential and will only be shared with the guardian of the student and the school’s SAP Core Team. Participation is voluntary. Parents have the right to choose whether their children will participate. Parents who want to request an Assessment for their child can complete an online form or call 800-678-2332 ext. 6117.
