Perspectives
Supportive Outreach Program Provided
By: Recovery Services of CMHC, Inc.
427 Eads Parkway
Lawrenceburg, IN 47025

(812) 537-7375

*Services

Perspectives is a brief program of education and group participation that addresses basic
issues related to living with someone who has a gambling problem.

Perspectives consists of three two-hour group sessions focused on understanding the
gambler and the effects of gambling on the family. Groups will meet once per week for
three weeks. Each session is structured to provide important information to participants
about the cycle of gambling addiction, to guide group sharing about experiences with a
problem gambler, and to explore changes in behavior, based on an informed perspective.

Perspectives is designed to help participants to understand how unhealthy relationship
patterns develop, how gambling affects the family, and how intervention techniques may
be used to confront the addicted gambler. Attitudes, feelings and personal choices will be
explored to help participants understand the negative patterns that develop in
relationships.

The goal for participants of Perspectives is a greater understanding of compulsive
gambling as a cycle as well as insight into the personal effects experienced in the family.

Perspectives is a six hour program. Cost is $60.00.

The CSR Team of Ripley County consists of a cross-functional group of people acting
together to help youth of the county. Specifically, CSR attempts to link the entire
community and it’s resources together to help our youth become better people.

Team members come from the county schools, law enforcement, probation department,
circuit court, judge’s office, local business, prosecutor’s office, the media and various
county agencies.

In the past, CSR has sponsored community meetings for sharing information regarding
youth issues, and has supported various activities that benefit the youth of the county.
Several other initiatives aimed at combating youth drug, alcohol and tobacco usage are
also underway. The group plans to survey the community to obtain data used to discover
what level of public awareness the Ripley County Community has in regard to youth and
adult drug and alcohol use and related topics.

The main purpose of the CSR team is to increase awareness of youth issues, discover
gaps in services, and relay education and information about these issues.

The CSR team generally meets once per month at the County Extension Service office in
Osgood. To join the team or find out more information about CSR, contact
Sandy Day Howard, coordinator for the council at 812-689-6965 or 812-689-7103.

The Southeastern Learning Center has been established by eight school corporations in
Dearborn, Ohio and Ripley Counties to provide an alternative education program for
students, in grades 7-12, who have not been successful in the traditional public school
setting for various reasons which could include behavioral, academic, or other problems.
The Center provides a quality education, recognizing the various learning styles and
emotional needs of students who may benefit from a non-traditional approach to learning
in an environment of high expectation for the development of students’ academic abilities.
 The Center offers a very flexible program individually tailored around the needs of each
student. A certified teacher works with no more than ten students per class session. The
goal of the Southeastern Learning Center is to meet the following needs of the students:

*     To help students return back to the home school
*     To enter work-study or vocational programs
*     To receive one-on-one counseling and/or tutoring
*     To help students earn credits necessary for graduation
*     To provide opportunity to those who are pregnant or teens with children to
      complete their education in a more flexible environment
*     To provide individual and group counseling depending upon the needs of the
      individual students

Students will be accepted into a nurturing environment where all students, regardless of
age, race, sex, nationality, or religion, will be given the opportunity to successfully
complete the requirements for a high school diploma.

*Eligibility Requirements:

Students must be residents of Dearborn, Ohio, or Ripley counties and are referred to the
Southeastern Learning Center through their home school after consultation with school
counselors
