Prime for Life

PRIME for Life is a risk reduction program.  The first goal of the program is to help each participant in the program reduce risk for any type of alcohol or drug problem.  The second goal focuses on self-assessment to help people understand and accept the need to make changes to protect the things most valuable in their lives.

PRIME for Life is based on research from many fields and is designed with respect for thousands of people who take this program each year.  It does not moralize or dictate.  We believe that people have good reasons for their beliefs and behaviors.  We also believe that with new information, time to process it, and support for change, most people are willing to explore new beliefs and change behaviors - if the information is valid, the support is genuine, and the benefits are clear.
