At Life Recovery, we feel that Education is essential for Prevention. Life Recovery of the Palm Beach’s Speaker ProgramLife Recovery of the Palm Beaches offers Educational Classes to schools and events As part of Life Recovery of the Palm Beaches comprehensive approach to behavioral health continuum of care, we recognize and use the Behavioral Health Continuum of Care Model addressing behavioral health problems and disorders. We are part of Palm Beach Coalition for Substance Abuse to recognize trends in the community, address them and to offer solutions in drug and alcohol use prevention. This model includes the following components:
These strategies are designed to create environments and conditions that support behavioral health and the ability of individuals to withstand challenges. Promotion strategies also reinforce the entire continuum of behavioral health services.
Delivered prior to the onset of a disorder, these interventions are intended to prevent or reduce the risk of developing a behavioral health problem, such as underage alcohol use, prescription drug misuse and abuse, and illicit drug use.
These services are for people diagnosed with a substance use or other behavioral health disorder.
These services support individuals’ abilities to live productive lives in the community and can often help with abstinence.
Life Recovery will go out to Schools to speak on prevention strategies that are tailored to that specific community and address the root causes of risky behaviors. We are cultural sensitive and have experience in addressing the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender populations on prevention. Statistics compiled by SAMHSA show a direct correlation of students who were exposed to addiction information and the decrease in alcohol, tobacco, drug and marijuana usage.
