Our Risk Reduction program offers teens and their parents Teen Intervene consists of lessons for teens and parents. The adolescents that meet the criteria for this program are usually in a diversion program or suspension from athletic participation. We have found that covering the material one on one, as well as a group setting, is also effective to meet the needs of our youth and families. In addition to group settings that may be adjusted based on need at the time.
In our Adult Risk Reduction Program participants learn through a five hour educational group about the effects of alcohol and other drug use on the body and mind, who is most at risk for developing a problem, self-assessing the impact any current use has had, and making a plan to live drug-free. This group is lead by counselors from the Freedom Center. For Mount Vernon Municipal Court referrals, this group is free of charge. For all other referrals, the cost is $20 for the workbook. You must pay your fee to the Freedom Center by the Monday preceding the date of the group. You can pay by cash or credit card in person, or by phone with credit card. No meal will be provided.
