Alcohol & Drug Information School (ADIS) Program

Our Alcohol & Drug Information School (ADIS) program is in an important two-day alcohol and drug risk reduction program designed for people who have begun using alcohol and other drugs, or who are part of a group where some alcohol and drug use is likely. 

You will learn new information that helps reduce risk for any future alcohol and other drug related-related problems throughout life. ADIS provides a clear understanding of how our own biology and our behavior affect our risk for problems. It also helps people understand that many things inside them - and within our society - influence our choices. You will learn how to respond to these influences in a way that reduces their risk for problems. The class also gives people a clear understanding of how their choices can create risk, and the importance of always making low-risk choices about alcohol and other drugs.
