What is SIRP? How Does it Benefit 13-18 Year Olds?

SIRP- Student Intervention and Reintegration Program empowers youth to make healthy decisions and reduce risk. It provides evidence-based information to youth about the risks of use, and helps them weigh—for themselves—the advantages and disadvantages of continuing to use. Most important, it helps participants plan for and commit to changes in their behavior. The program is a conversation, not a lecture and is offered in small groups (2-12 people).

If you would like to refer a youth between the ages of 13-18 years old, visit the Casco Bay CAN website here to find out about this free drug & alcohol education class. The first session is being held this Saturday and Sunday March 4 & 5 at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester!  You can also call (207) 522-1414 for more information.

Student Intervention and Reintegration Program (SIRP)

SIRP is an educational, risk-reduction program for high school aged youth who have had experiences with tobacco, alcohol or drugs, and who may not qualify for treatment. The primary goal of SIRP is to reduce or eliminate use of tobacco, alcohol, or drugs and associated problems, such as absenteeism, car crashes, fights, risky sexual behaviors, and health problems. SIRP helps participants plan for and commit to changes in their behavior.
