Insight is an 8 hour, early intervention program for youth who violate school policy, receive an alcohol or other drug (AoD) related charge through juvenile court, or have any other negative experience with AoD. The program serves adolescents in grades 7-12 and is designed to accomplish two objectives:
Participants will learn about the physical, emotional, family, vocational, achievement, and legal consequences of alcohol or drug (AoD) use.
Participants are guided through an examination of their own AoD use. Patterns of thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and pressures are explored so they may understand this process and learn to make better choices.
