  • 'The Next Step’: This program is designed to prepare college-bound high school seniors with information they need to make wise choices and take care of themselves while away at college. The focus is on the educational, legal, social, and health risks associated with alcohol and substance use and abuse on college campuses. The program also imparts helpful tips on getting along with a roommate, identifying a support system, and taking care of their physical and emotional health while away from home. 
  • 'The Other Talk’: This program provides current trends and information about drugs and alcohol available on college campuses as well as the importance of communicating the right messages to your child regarding these potential pitfalls. Additionally, ideas are shared to ensure a successful transition for both you and your new college student.
