CHOICES

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 18 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.

A young woman sits in a circle with her counseling support group. She holds a water bottle as she leans forward and shares a humorous story.

CHOICES is now being offered in a one week condensed version offered virtually through an online group platform (Webex invitations will be provided).

For more information, to register or to refer someone for an upcoming session, please contact Sara Francavilla at saraf@yorktownfamilyservices.com.

Upon completion of the program participants will receive a certificate. Please check back regularly for updates on future sessions.

Delivery of the CHOICES program is made possible by funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
