Student Intervention Reintegration Program @ Sanford Police Dept.
Apr 21 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

SIRP  (Student Intervention Reintegration Program) targets at-risk youth.  Youth are considered at risk if they are experimenting or otherwise using alcohol or other drugs, but do not qualify for treatment intervention.

The aim of SIRP is to empower youth to make healthy decisions and reduce risk for problems.

The program is taught by trained and certified PRIME for Life instructors. The program’s nonjudgmental approach reduces resistance to the lifesaving information presented in the program and increases students’ openness to change.

Classes are held 3rd week of the month, Monday – Thursday from 3pm to 6pm at the Sanford Police Station.
