Director’s Update

ommendations for chronic illnesses: Heroin Addiction 60% Diabetes <50% High Blood Pressure <30% With these numbers in mind, we feel fortunate to see more than 2/3 of teens follow their recommendations to avoid further substance abuse problems. Change is hard for everyone. But, change for teenagers is something they see and do everyday!

Multi-media presentations assist staff in addressing the various learning styles and help to captivate the imagination and creativity of teens. By creating a comfortable learning environment, incorporating current technology and utilizing small groups to develop healthy peer relationships, teens that participate in the Recovery High program are shown how they can become a healthy, responsible young adult. For those teens that show early warning signs of problematic use and don’t need intensive services, they can attend the Life Skills Program on Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00-6:00. They learn various skills that will improve their quality of life such as problem-solving, communication, stress management, employability factors, personal responsibility and self-esteem to reduce their level of risk for substance abuse in the future.

During the two hours of Trick or Treat time for Halloween, over 150 people visited the Teen Center and got their pick of candy from the counter, viewed the renovations of 2003 and the new theater set-up in the backroom. Many enjoyed an opportunity to warm up a bit before venturing onward through the neighborhood.
