CHOICES is a prevention, early intervention program that targets the primary social and psychological factors that lead youth to engage in substance use and other risk-taking behaviours.
The CHOICES program consists of a series of 10 weekly sessions over a period of 10 weeks.
The program provides youth aged 12 to 25 with accurate, up-to-date information about the effects of various substances and the environmental influences supporting substance use. As well as providing information, it assists youth to develop the skills and confidence necessary to resist risk-taking behaviors including, but not limited to, substance use.
Youth Testimonials of the CHOICES program:
“CHOICES is such a safe space and honestly gives off such an amazing vibe. I don’t know how many times I’ve participated in CHOICES because it’s too many times to count. Because of COVID I struggled to communicate with my friends and CHOICES has just been a huge help. CHOICES is such a great place to learn about new things and we learn how to control our emotions. I have so many new friends thanks to CHOICES and I really am thankful for it! <3”
