Our philosophy

This program gives teachers and educators the tools needed to help our young people make strong decisions that will affect them throughout their lives. Our world today students not only face decisions about whether or not to use drugs they also face going home to broken, dysfunctional and sometimes addicted parents. Botvin LST addresses these situations and gives young people the skills to overcome these obstacles to a normal life. 

The second component of our program will give our specialist's intervention skills that can steer young people and their parents to the relevant social services that can help stop destructive behavior before it becomes an addiction. Intake and referral skills are also taught, and once trained graduates can make referrals to the best service for the situation.  

AAFDAP specialists will have extensive knowledge of treatment programs. They will have the skills necessary to direct those in need to the appropriate outreach resource or treatment facility.
