WEEKEND CLASS AVAILABILITY... We offer Cognitive-Behavioral Intervention (CBI) Program classes on Tuesdays and Thurdsays for youth ages 10-17 and on Saturdays for adults ages 18-24. OUR CLIENTS... We specialize in working with youth, young adults, and college students. Our hope is that we maintain a safe environment that caters to people who are not accustom to getting in trouble but just made a bad choice that lead them to the criminal justice system. CURRICULUM... Clients enrolled in the class will be exposed to a variety of experiential learning tools including evidence-based workbooks, guest presenters, videos, group projects, and games that assist them with making future positive choices around substance abuse, life skills and decision making. The goal of the course is not to tell clients what to do but inform them on the negative consequences if they choose to make negative choices.
