DATA Programs » School Based Intervention
School-Based Intervention services focus on reducing risk factors generally associated with the progression of substance use and mental health problems. Screening and assessment services occur to determine whether the intervention program is an appropriate placement for the client. Those clients who are eligible for services and are admitted to treatment undergo an in depth assessment in order to identify strengths, abilities, needs, and preferences. The results of the assessment process facilitate the development of a collaboratively developed intervention plan that is reviewed regularly and guides the course of treatment. The ultimate goal of the program is successful completion and sustained recovery. Youth admitted to this program are generally only permitted to attend individual and family sessions during non-CORE classes and with teacher permission. The program follows the academic calendar approved by the school district. This program utilizes various evidence-based treatment strategies including Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (A-CRA), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
