The Student Intervention and Reintegration Program (SIRP) is an evidence-based program for Maine teens, ages 13 – 18, who may be experimenting with alcohol and other drugs, making questionable decisions, or engaging in risky behavior. The program empowers teens to make healthy decisions and reduce risk, all without judgment or shame.
This 12-hour educational program is a conversation, not a lecture, and is offered in small groups at many Maine high schools. Each class is taught by a nationally certified instructor. SIRP is one small step in the right direction, and, for many teens, will be the biggest step of their lives. The class provides teens with facts and teaches them to assess risks and make better, more informed choices in their lives.
