Substance Awareness Center’s Re-Direct Training goals include:
- Delay the mean age of on-set of first substance use (the earlier the first use, the greater the risk for developing addiction).
- Increase the practice of healthy coping/social skills of program participants by 50%.
- Decrease or at minimum maintain the past 30 day trend of substance use by Indian River County Re-Direct participants. Trends are derived from the Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey.
We believe that achieving the above goals will decrease Re-Direct participants risk for substance use and its devastating effects (physically, emotionally and socially), as well as, prepare students cognitively with the essential skills needed in dealing with many stressful life situations.
