The 12-session interactive drug prevention curriculum takes place in a small group setting. Participants learn skills to achieve the goal of being drug-free. Students learn about communication, coping skills, chemical dependency, decision-making, drug facts, and self-control. These components are delivered through discussion, games, role-playing exercises, videos, and student worksheets.
The YPI Program also provides screenings and individual counseling to students in early stages of substance abuse or at-risk for future substance abuse. Students are referred by school personnel, parents, probation officers, and/or court officials. When non-drug related problems are identified through the course of screening and counseling, referrals to other support services may be provided.
The program serves school districts in a 7-county area, which includes Calhoun, DeWitt, Goliad, Gonzales, Jackson, Lavaca and Victoria Counties.
Mid-Coast Staff are also available to provide presentations on alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs in a variety of settings for adults and youth.
