Prime for Life

Prime for Life is an evidence-based program specifically designed for people who might be making high-risk choices. We explore each participant’s beliefs, attitudes, risk perceptions, and motivations, and provide the knowledge of how to make decisions that reduce their risk of alcohol and drug related problems throughout their lives.

Program options


Length (hr) Audience Cost
4.5/6 Teens without known increased risk of substance use problems. Parents desiring to support their children but need of research based knowledge. $50
8/10 Those who demonstrate signs of increased risk for developing problems such as youth with truancy issues or family members with alcohol or substance use issues $125
People already making high-risk alcohol or drug choices and who might be exhibiting signs of problems, e.g., youth in juvenile justice facilities and DUI/OWI offenders $150

Note: Price includes the fee for the mandatory Prime workbook. Payment must be made by cash, credit card or money order before the start of the class.Note: The current copyrighted Prime for Life materials are tailored specifically for alcohol and marijuana use issues and in a general manner address issues arising from the use of other substances such as cocaine and methamphetamine.  We make every effort to tailor the classes to the audience needs.
