Keep Them Safe, Keep Them Healthy

Young people living in long term recovery speak to all WLCSD 8th grade students about their experiences and share ways choices they can make to stay away from drugs and alcohol. We gather pre- and post-survey data about the impact of this program on youth. We can also provide a parent education component that complements the youth program.

Population(s) Served

Families

Judges and court staff from the 52-1 District Court in Novi hold sentencing hearings for substance use-related offenses in our schools as an assembly for students. Young people see the legal consequences and real life impact of substance use and addiction. The court staff address the students and answer questions as well as share stories of their experiences with substance use by young people in their courtrooms.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

All minor in possession of alcohol citations are adjudicated in person at the 52-1 district court and LACC collaborates with neighboring coalitions, court staff and local law enforcement to provide a mandatory education program for all defendants. This program explains the risks of underage alcohol use and binge drinking, addiction, social pressures to use alcohol, and ways to develop self-efficacy to avoid underage alcohol use. Education for parents is also a part of this program.
