What is a Student Assistance Program?

The Student Assistance Program goals are designed not to punish students involved with drugs or alcohol, but rather to help them to identify negative consequences, and guide them toward making better choices. The counselor is also available to make referrals to treatment providers both outpatient and inpatient should the situation require.

We strive to prevent substance abuse by addressing the stress factors teens experience and teaching them coping skills to handle problems in a healthier fashion. SACs partner with a network of community services and agencies, creating a coordinated effort to promote services for all students and their families.

The Student Assistance Counselor does not always just deal with substance abuse they are also trained on dealing with social/emotional and behavioral issues, bullying, anger management, grief, loss, family changes, eating disorders, crisis management and so much more.
