The mission of the P.A.R.S. Prevention Program is to equip this generation and community with the truth, empower them to make healthy choices, and ensure a future of high confidence, self-worth, and the ability to maximize their potential. P.A.R.S.’s staff has a heart for youth and our community. We want them to experience healing, friendship, goal setting, and the ability to make good decisions. Our passion is unwavering and we are committed to build resiliency towards substance abuse.
Programming is evidence-based, the primary focus is individual decision making with respect to socially appropriate behaviors. Prevention programming includes substance abuse prevention education for elementary, middle and high school youth. P.A.R.S. uses evidence-based curriculums such as Botvin LifeSkills, Second Step, Too Good for Drugs, and Project Alert. We also utilize the SAMHSA Building Blocks program to educate children 5-13yrs on the importance of self-worth, positive and nurturing internal experiences and empowerment. We also provide education and training to those professionals who work with youth.
