DETOUR is an alcohol and drug program for people under the age of 21. It is designed to gently but powerfully challenge common beliefs and attitudes that directly contribute to high-risk alcohol and drug use. The program goals are to reduce the risk for health problems and impairment problems.
Detour uses PRIME For Life curriculum. Prime for Life is an evidence-based and motivational prevention, intervention and pre-treatment program specifically designed for people who might be making high risk choices. It is designed to change drinking and drug use behaviors by changing beliefs, attitudes, risk perceptions, motivations, and the knowledge of how to reduce the risk of alcohol and drug-related problems throughout life.
Your Choice has combined our traditional Detour class with Detour 420 which has a unique, multifaceted approach that motivates people of varying backgrounds and levels of high-risk choices to change all substance use, including cannabis use, attitudes and behaviors. This NEW class will:
· Focus on specific beliefs and attitudes common among substance users including marijuana users
· Address thorny issues, such as “Is marijuana addictive?” and “How can marijuana impairment trick us?”
· Illustrate a cannabis-specific progression to a trigger point for THC addiction as well trigger points for other substances
· Use the latest science and new THC-focused videos to illustrate real-world examples of marijuana’s effects
· Discuss risks of other substances such as alcohol, tobacco, prescription medication, and others
This class has been designed by industry experts, including doctoral-level psychologists to promote thoughtful self-analysis.
The Your Choice staff are certified and trained to present the PRIME for Life Program. Each participant will receive a PRIME for Life Workbook and Certificate at the completion of the program.
