Catholic Human Services/Up North Prevention is offering Prime for Life virtually this school year for any students/clients you would like to refer.  Prime for Life is an evidence-based program with demonstrated success in significantly altering attitudes, increasing abstinence and reducing high-risk drinking and drug use from early teen years through adulthood.

Prime for Life is designed to change drinking and drug use behaviors by changing:

  • Beliefs

  • Attitudes

  • Perception of risk

  • Motivation

  • Knowledge

Prime for Life is free of charge to students ages 13-18 in Northern Michigan by certified instructors.  This substance use prevention program is offered twice a month and will be conducted virtually via ZOOM in two 2 ½ hour sessions 3:30-6:00 pm.  Each student must be present and complete each of the 2 ½ hour sessions ( 5 hours total) to successfully complete the program.

To participate in the class, the student needs access to a computer with a camera and audio capability, as well as a WiFi connection to connect to Zoom.
