Alcohol and Drug


School Intervention Program

The School Intervention Program (ScIP) offers programming for identified middle and high school students who are referred from Dorchester School District II and is supported by a contractual agreement with Dorchester Alcohol and Drug Commission. ScIP offers a multi-faceted treatment approach that includes assessment, case management, and group, individual or family therapy. Other services may involve crisis intervention and linkage to community resources. Most students are required to complete a minimum of six weekly group sessions before they can be designated as successfully completing the program.

ScIP clients are assessed by one of our adolescent therapists and placed in one of three group programs, depending on the presenting problem and need of the teen and his or her family:

The Behavior Management Group is intended to help students and their families identify and overcome situations leading to or underlying high-risk behaviors. With a focus on decreasing behavioral problems, this program aims to strengthen communication and decision-making skills, improve identification with family and school, and enhance judgment and utilization of internal and external resources. Through mutual sharing of problems and discussion of effective communication and problem solving, clients are guided to discover their own strengths and coping skills.

The Youth Risk Reduction Group provides a forum for teens to identify and overcome problems and situations leading to or underlying alcohol and drug use. Goals include increasing knowledge of the impact that drugs and alcohol have on the body and brain as well as improving understanding of family and social values which impact use. This education - therapy format engages teens in enjoying their peer group and activities toward making healthy decisions that impact their well-being.

The Adolescent Breakthrough Group provides a higher level of intervention for adolescents who have a demonstrated substance use problem and an inability to stop their use despite negative consequences. Clients are aided to identify triggers, cravings and high-risk behaviors and to develop strategies to avoid them. The group process is supportive of recovery, allowing clients to identify and develop coping skills and recovery skills for ongoing success.
