Catholic Human Services/Up North Prevention is offering Prime for Life virtually this school year for any students/clients you would like to refer.  Prime for Life is an evidence-based program with demonstrated success in significantly altering attitudes, increasing abstinence and reducing high-risk drinking and drug use from early teen years through adulthood.

Prime for Life is designed to change drinking and drug use behaviors by changing:
·      Beliefs
·      Attitudes
·      Perception of risk
·      Motivation
·      Knowledge

Prime for Life is free of charge to students ages 12-17 in Northern Michigan by certified instructors.  This substance use prevention program is offered twice a month and will be conducted virtually via ZOOM in two 2 ½ hour sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays ( second week of the month and fourth week of the month) two separate  classes, 3:30-6:00 pm.  Each student must be present and complete each of the 2 ½ hour sessions ( 5 hours total) to successfully complete the program.   ( A class will only be held if we have a minimum of 3 youth participating- if required number of participants is not meet the youth will be placed in the next occurring class.)

To participate in the class, the student would need access to a computer with a camera and audio capability, as well as a Wifi connection to connect to Zoom.

If you need additional information, have any questions or would like to register a child for a class, please contact Up North Prevention at  989-356-6385.
