SBIRT Program Team Celebrates Red Ribbon Week

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

The SBIRT team from Phoenix House’s Brentwood Campus visited classrooms of the Wyandanch Union Free School District during Red Ribbon Week to present drug prevention seminars, heightening student awareness of the dangers of drugs and alcohol. In addition to our team, current Phoenix House clients attended as guest speakers, sharing their stories of addiction and recovery. Posters were created by students to promote anti-substance abuse themes, “It Can Happen To You” presentations by Counselors allowed students to determine the possibility of high risk behaviors and impulsivity, and Wellness Counselors distributed prevention materials, drug-free pledges and ribbons to students at lunch assembly, symbolizing a drug-free lifestyle. We are committed to prevention education to aid students in making informed decisions, in turn encouraging healthy lifestyle habits. Students enjoy our unique, interactive presentations; our SBIRT team always receives many pieces of fan mail days later!
