High Risk for making Bad Choices? There’s help!

High Risk for making Bad Choices? There’s help!

Are you the parent, relative, or friend of someone who might be making high-risk choices?  There is help.

District Health Department #10 offers a highly-effective program called Prime for Life® designed to help youth and young adults reduce or prevent high-risk choices that may lead to drug and alcohol use.  Prime For Life® is an evidence-based motivational prevention, intervention and pretreatment program specifically designed for people who might be making high-risk choices. This includes but is not limited to impaired driving offenders, college students, and young people charged with alcohol and/or drug offenses. It is designed to change drinking and drug use behaviors by changing beliefs, attitudes, risk perceptions, motivations, and the knowledge of how to reduce their risk of alcohol and drug related problems throughout their lives. Because Prime For Life® includes both prevention and intervention content, it is also designed in a way that serves universal, selective, and indicated audiences with program delivery options for each.

This FREE program is available to residents of Wexford, Missaukee, Mason, and Oceana Counties who are 12 to 25 years of age.
