Substance Abuse Prevention
Project SUCCESS (Schools Using Coordinated Community Efforts to Strengthen Students) is a national model program that has been effective in preventing and reducing teen substance use. Project SUCCESS is a school-based program that works to reduce the factors that put students at risk for substance abuse, while working to enhance the factors that will protect students from the risks. This is accomplished by placing highly trained counselors in schools to provide a full range of substance use prevention and early intervention services. Project SUCCESS Counselors work with students individually and in small groups; conduct classroom presentations; train and consult on prevention issues with school staff and refer and follow up with students and families needing additional services.
Please contact the Guidance Counselor at your child’s school to determine what services are being provided at their school.
