Healthy Community Coalition of Greater Franklin County is excited to announce that we will be hosting Prime for Life classes for the community.
Prime for Life is a non-judgmental, evidence-based motivational prevention, intervention, and pretreatment program specifically designed for people who might be making high-risk choices. For example, individuals referred by a court, youth engaging in drinking or drug use or youth with families who have substance use disorders. It is designed to change drinking and drug use behaviors by changing beliefs, attitudes, risk perceptions, motivations and the knowledge of how to reduce the risk of alcohol and drug related problems throughout lives.
For more information about Prime for Life please contact: Kat Lemieux at firstname.lastname@example.org or (207)-779-2262 or Sabrina LoPizzo at email@example.com or (207)-779-2260. If there is interest in having a class held at your facility, please let us know and we will make arrangements.
