Teen Intervene is an early intervention and counseling program, designed to reduce and eliminate youth drug and alcohol use in 12 to 19 year olds. This program is for youth who exhibit drug or alcohol use concerns but who are not substance dependent.
The identified youth attends three 60-minutes sessions with the facilitator. The first two sessions are one-on-one sessions where the professional and youth set goals, check progress, and develop coping strategies. The third session includes a parent or guardian and focuses on healthy modeling and supervision.
