Youth Prevention Programs: Project Toward No Drug Use
This program assists children ages 4-17 cope with the effects of having chemically dependant parents. This fifteen session, interactive program deals with issues such as family rules, family roles, feelings, stress, anger and self expression. Children participate in supervised activities and games to facilitate their learning experience.
A separate group discussing the same topics as the children's program is offered to the parents. These groups are usually conducted at the same time as the children's groups so that families will have an easier time scheduling their day. Planned family activities are also scheduled so that children and their parents may have shared experiences.
