Overview

Trumbull Student Assistance Consortium’s Intervention & Prevention Programs are education programs in which students receive information, acquire skills, and create plans for personal behavior change.

These are not intended to be treatment or cessation programs. The staff does not assess or counsel students. The Intervention & Prevention Programs are designed to:

  • Provide students with accurate information regarding drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and anger management.
  • Provide students an opportunity to learn communication, listening, goal setting, decision-making, refusal and anger management skills.
  • Provide students the opportunity to discuss short and long term consequences to potentially dangerous decisions while reflecting upon their own decisions and actions.
  • Assist students in exploring alternatives to violence and drug use.
  • Provide an atmosphere conducive to discussing and creating opportunities for personal change.  

Format & Requirements

The program consists of six evening session, each 90 minutes in length. Each session uses group discussions and group projects to address program topics.

Parents and students are expected to actively participate in all sessions.

  • Any absence, including partial absence, from the program results in a recommendation that the school reinstate any discipline action held in abeyance while student was attending the program.
  • Tardiness and/or early departure will be considered an absence.
  • Individuals under the influence (or suspected of being under the influence) of drugs or alcohol will be asked to leave and considered absent.
  • The student must attend school during their involvement in the program. Any student absenteeism or tardiness during this time is considered an absence from the program.
  • The student may be required to meet with their school guidance counselor for program follow-up.
