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.
