Youth Engagement

Youth intervention is fundamental to Right Step’s mission to reduce the impact of substance use disorders in the community. Intervening early in middle and high school is critical.  Individuals who begin using alcohol or tobacco when they are very young are more likely to abuse them later in life, when it becomes much more difficult to quit.  Youth engagement requires a collaborative effort between the child, the parent, and the community.


Right Step approaches substance abuse intervention with innovation and social awareness.  Interactive lecture, role play, and games are used to aid the curriculum and keep our youth engaged.
