The Drug Education program is a one week 15 hour program that offers individuals a chance to evaluate the role that drugs and alcohol have played in their lives. It also gives these individuals an opportunity to explore changes to make for a better future. The program strives to help individuals avoid problems and negative outcomes including drug and alcohol related behavior.
Referrals for the Drug Education program can be made by employers, athletic programs, or other agencies that may benefit from an increase of awareness of the role of drugs and alcohol. The Drug Education can be paired with the random drug screening program for increased accountability.
