Education Programs

Learn How to Prevent Substance Use Disorders

All of Keystone’s holistic treatment programs include a significant education and mentorship component so that patients can learn how to heal, how to better care for themselves and how to avoid situations that might lead to reoccurrence. The Keystone Prevention Center also works closely with partner organizations to provide evidence-based education and prevention programs in schools and in the community.

In the Schools

Keystone provides programs in a variety of formats available in schools, including LifeSkills Training and Prime for Life Youth Program.

LifeSkills Training

Botvin LifeSkills Training (LST) is a research-validated substance use prevention program proven to reduce the risks of alcohol, tobacco, drug abuse, and violence by targeting the major social and psychological factors that promote the initiation of substance use and other risky behaviors. This comprehensive and exciting program provides adolescents and young teens with the confidence and skills necessary to successfully handle challenging situations.

Prime for Life® Youth Program

Prime For Life® is an evidence-based motivational prevention, intervention and pretreatment program specifically designed for people who might be making high-risk choices. This includes but is not limited to impaired driving offenders, college students, and young people charged with alcohol and/or drug offenses. It is designed to change drinking and drug use behaviors by changing beliefs, attitudes, risk perceptions, motivations, and the knowledge of how to reduce their risk of alcohol and drug related problems throughout their lives. This program is for youth age 16 and younger who have engaged in tobacco, alcohol, or marijuana.
