Youth Prevention Programs
The Youth Prevention programs of the San Antonio Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse includes substance abuse prevention education for elementary, middle and high school youth. SACADA uses evidence-based curriculums such as Botvin LifeSkills, the Curriculum Based Support Group Program (Kids Connection), Too Good for Drugs, and Project Toward No Drug Abuse. We also utilize the Project Heart program to educate children 8-13yrs on the importance of self-worth, positive and nurturing internal experiences and empowerment.
We know not every child gets what they need from their home environment. Often times they experience too much at an early age and have a hard time understanding what has happened to them and around them. Our prevention staff meets with youth on a weekly basis teaching the importance of sharing their feelings, building up self-esteem, and building resiliency skills, which are important ‘tools” in life. Showing a child how to use these “tools” help them into becoming productive, healthy individuals.Click for more information
