Choices – Drug & Alcohol Education Program for Teens
Choices – Drug & Alcohol Education Program for Teens is for any young person in need of education on how to deal with the pressures of alcohol/other drug use so they can make better decisions.
Outreach’s Choices program is designed as an opportunity to help families find answers. Our aim is to reduce substance abuse among adolescents by supporting families and educating teens.
The Choices program does not assume that every teen entering it has firmly set upon the road to addiction. The goals of this educational program are to help prevent re-occurrence of the previous behavior, helping teens make better decisions in the future.
If the teen was referred by a judge, Outreach will inform the magistrate of enrollment, successful completion and other relevant information.

“I learned about what the long-term effects of drugs and alcohol, rather than the short-term, “in the moment” effects that’ll make me reconsider drinking/doing drugs.”
“I learned how dangerous and serious even small amounts of drugs/alcohol are. All of the consequences aren’t worth it.”
“We reviewed various types of harmful drugs. It has made me realize that I have to think twice before I decide to do something that can be potentially harmful to me. At first I was dreading the class but it was actually kind of fun.”
“The facilitator was very conscientious and knowledgeable and was of great help in understanding the dangers of underage drinking.”
“I would love to see [this program] as a mandatory high school requirement.”
“The instructor was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. The kids in this class are getting a good education!”
