This program targets all youth in 6th – 8th grade. The curriculum used for this program is an evidence-based program built around a framework of social and emotional skill development such as goal setting, decision making, effective communication, peer pressure refusal, pro-social bonding, conflict resolution, and media literacy.
Too Good For Drugs also promotes academic achievement, alignment with education standards and priorities, and healthy and supportive classroom management.
This program is a series of 10 sessions, 45 minutes each.
This is a Selective program, meaning that the youth we work with are at a higher-than-average risk for drug use. There are many factors that may play into why the child is at higher risk: parents are in recovery for drug use, death of a parent or caretaker because of drug use, parents incarcerated, unstable home environment, disciplinary problems at home or school, or parents going through divorce with no healthy adults to support and mentor children while going through this process.
This program can be taught to children in 6th -8th grade. Please contact the program director for more information.
