Prevention Education and Early Intervention
The Student Assistance Program provides comprehensive, customizable drug, alcohol, and nicotine prevention services and healthy living programs for elementary and high school students as well as parents, caregivers, and youth-serving professionals. Caron partners with schools, families, communities, and other organizations to provide contracted, fee-for-service, and grant-funded programs and services to over 120,000 students, professionals, and parents/caregivers each year.
Teen Intervene is an evidence-based, educational early intervention program for students (ages 12-19) who have issues with drugs/alcohol that need attention. Participants evaluate their use in a non-judgmental and confidential setting. Using the stages-of-change model, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy, the program leader helps them to address their use and make healthy changes.
