I Mind is a voluntary one-day weekend program. It gives adolescents tools to avoid substance use.
I Mind helps students return to school or school programs as quickly as possible after discipline measures.
When school Alcohol and Other Drug policies are violated, students are often excluded from school and other activities for discipline. Youth need prevention programming to turn from potential substance use disorders.
I Mind consists of evidence informed education and an early substance use intervention assessment.
The program will cover prevention, a small group discussion, and intervention. Topics will include prevention on smoking, vaping, alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs.
Each student will take a Substance Abuse Subtle Screen inventory (SASSI) as a tool in assessing substance use disorders. Parents will receive screening results at a later time after review. The school will not receive or have access to the screening results.
