Motivation, finishing school, recovery, new behavior for the troubled-teen, at-risk youth, including those with substance abuse challenges
PEAK CHOICES is a series of programs for the troubled teen and at-risk youth, especially those already dealing with consequences of poor choices, to get clear about their past and reclaim their power over their future. Peak Choices also includes an in-depth set of modules on drug and alcohol abuse, how to get help, and how to stay on track with recovery.
The exercises work well as a stand-along program, they provide superb benefits to existing interventions, recovery, or treatment programs, and can help expand the effectiveness of qualified clinical or psychological interventions. Adult practitioners (teachers, counselors, program directors, youth leaders, ministers, parents, etc.) can offer these Activities to their students as an educational and motivational resource, and then practitioners can participate fully in the discovery, discussion, insight, and new perspectives gained.
