Your Choice offers trainings on the two most popular presentations: Wake Up Call for community members and Wake Up Call professional development for school personnel.

Wake-Up Call is a life-size exhibit of a teen’s bedroom with more than 20 “red flags” that can signal drug or alcohol use. The bedroom identifies spots where teens may hide drugs, household items that can be used as  drug paraphernalia and ways teens try to cover up drug and alcohol use. Wake Up Call is a valuable resource that should be available in every community.

Wake Up Call Professional Development features a mock classroom designed for teachers, coaches, counselors, administrators and other professionals working with students to help them identify signs of possible substance use. Some students will go to great lengths to cover up substance use and to conceal illegal substances they slip into school. The goal of this presentation is to provide education and awareness to educators so they know how seemingly innocent items can be an indication of substance use.
