Gender Responsive and Co-Ed Groups

Drug and Alcohol / Behavioral Challenges Education Group

This is a 12 week class that focuses on different topics each week.

The Change Companies® has created Journals specifically for adolescents in behavioral health and addiction treatment programs. This Keep It Direct and Simple (KIDS) approach highlights core concepts appropriate for the adolescent. The participant’s journal utilizes a research-based process called Interactive Journaling.® which is listed on SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) website.

My Substance Use -This journal allows clients to explore their substance use behaviors. They also receive important facts on the effects of alcohol and other drugs.

Marijuana Education - This journal gives participants an opportunity to self-assess their experience with this drug. Facts about the impact of marijuana on the brain and body are presented, along with information about the social consequences of marijuana use.

Why Am I Here? - focuses clients' attention on the problems that brought them to an intervention or treatment program. It begins to get clients to recognize their own feelings and the important role peers play in their lives.

Personal Inventory - This journal leads clients through an inventory that deals with both the positive and negative aspects of their character. Emphasis is placed on the personal gains achieved by doing a thorough inventory.

Anger and other feelings - Getting a handle on their feelings helps adolescents work on their problems. This Journal assists adolescents in honestly recognizing and accepting their feelings. It includes a special focus on anger.

My Family provides a close look at family issues from an adolescent's point of view. Many opportunities are provided to describe feelings about family members, rules and behaviors.

Personal Relationships - This journal provides adolescents with a focus on how healthy relationships are formed. It includes a special emphasis on communication skills.

Faulty Beliefs - Often adolescents establish beliefs that are faulty and encourage self-destructive behaviors. This unique Journal allows clients to see how their own faulty beliefs may have caused them problems.

My Values - This journal gives adolescents an opportunity to explore values that have influenced their lives. They also examine how they can strengthen positive values by setting SMART goals.

Moving On focuses on relapse prevention. This Journal guides participants to identify triggers that can lead them back to high-risk behaviors.
