RESOURCES FOR ALL
The Council on Recovery's Choices program is a comprehensive, multiple high-risk behavior prevention and intervention program tailored to meet each school's unique needs. The program utilizes evidence-based methods for reducing high-risk behavior by working directly with school culture and creating student, parent, faculty action groups to achieve positive outcomes. By addressing the entire school-specific system, Choices delivers specialized programming to universal, selective, and indicated target audiences within each school through close interaction between faculty, parents, and students.
The Choices program model can be adapted to meet the prevention needs of any school. Choices utilizes a novel prevention approach that builds students’ executive functioning skills while simultaneously targeting a variety of high-risk behaviors that students often struggle with.
Schools also have the option to integrate a part-time or full-time Choices Counselor on campus who can provide groups for high-risk students and conduct individual and family therapy. These Counselors can also provide case management and other services as needed.
Many students and their families have a hard time accessing and navigating the maze of public and private services. There may be ample resources in a community, but rarely is there someone on the ground who is able to connect these resources with the schools and students that need them most. Through a school-based coordinator, we bring community resources into schools to empower success for all students by removing barriers for students at risk of dropping out, keeping kids in schools and on the path to graduation and leveraging evidence, relationships and local resources to drive results.
