Remedy Exchange- Prime for Life: Risk Reduction Class
Remedy Exchange, Inc. established in 2013 is a licensed substance abuse prevention program in the State of Michigan designed to help individuals and communities make positive lifestyle choices. The focus of our work is centered around the Strategic Prevention Framework and a Positive Community Norms approach. Both of these frameworks lay the foundation for the programs and services offered by Remedy Exchange. We work effectively with individuals and small groups, guiding them through a variety of educational, skill building, and intervention strategies to reduce high risk choices around alcohol, marijuana and other substance use. Community-based strategies address perception of risk, access and social norms related to substance abuse among youth and adults.
Prime For Life provides a judgment-free way of understanding how alcohol and drug-related problems develop, what we can do to prevent them, and why sometimes we need help. The Level 1 program covers the Exploring Unit and provides a brief overview of Reflecting and Protecting Units. The Level 2 program picks up where the Level 1 program stops and covers the content included in the Reflecting and Protecting Units.
Three Learning Units:
Exploring Unit: Examines the perception of personal risk
Reflecting Unit: Illustrates the progression toward addiction and allows participants to assess where they might be on that path
Protecting Unit: Guides preparation for personal change
