SafeRx has partnered with The Clearlake Youth center to fund a youth support group based on the 12-step program. The program, called “The Landing”, is space for youth to have support with substance abuse and other life issues.
The Landing occurs once or twice a week at the youth center and generally consists of an informal meal, an icebreaker activity, a lesson/teaching, and then small-group discussions (broken off into female and male groups) where youth can speak honestly about their struggles with substance use as well as other issues they may be struggling with, such as peer pressure, bullying, depression, etc.
The Landing is a safe, confidential space. It is not a place where advice or counseling is given by facilitators and peers, but rather where individuals can be heard, form connections with others, and feel supported.
- Target ages: 13-19
- Inclusive of all perspectives/beliefs
- Lessons are based on decision-making models
- Can potentially be used by schools to refer students with substance use issues.
If you or someone you know is interested in participating or referring a youth to The Landing Program, please contact the program facilitator:
Taylor O’Connor – email@example.com.
You can also contact us for more questions or for a referral.
