Education Classes

Education and prevention classes are vital in the fight against substance abuse in our communities. The CKF Addiction Treatment has a variety of classes and programs to help those at-risk get the help they need. Contact us for additional details.

YES

Youth Education and Safety (YES)

WHAT IS THE YES PROGRAM?

The YES Program is designed for youth, ages 12 to 18, who have been identified as having some degree of involvement with alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs, but whose use has been evaluated to be at an early stage. The goal of the YES program is to introduce the young participants and their family members to the knowledge and skills needed to effectively respond to the challenge of adolescent substance abuse.

The program requires the attendance of not only the young person, but also at least one parent or guardian. Substance abuse is a problem that affects all members of a family system and is a challenge for both the young person and parents alike. It has been proven that the greatest success with educational programs such as YES occurs when both youth and parents are involved. Both parents are encouraged to attend whenever possible.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND YES?

Any young person aged 12 to 18 may participate in the YES program when accompanied by a parent or guardian. Service agencies, schools, families or the court system may make referrals for the program. This is a prevention/intervention program that can benefit any young person who is beginning to become involved with alcohol/tobacco or other drug use and who has already experienced some degree of negative consequences due to this use.

Similar programs are available for young people over the age of 18 and who are no longer living at home or in a structured environment.

WHO FACILITATES THE PROGRAM?

A trained prevention staff member facilitates the program. This is an educational program rather than a counseling session. However, the staff of the program is qualified to make referrals for counseling services if the family identifies a need for additional services.

WHAT HAPPENS IN YES?

Through a variety of informational segments and activities, participants receive accurate, up-to-date information about underage substance use and abuse. Activities are designed to be experiential and thought provoking.

The program is broken into four segments:

  • Substance Abuse & Youth
  • Consequences of Alcohol, Tobacco and/or Other Drug Use
  • Parent Youth Communication
  • Contracting For Change

Participants are required to complete each segment of the program.

This program does meet the educational requirements often ordered by the court system for legal offenses such as Minor in Possession, Minor in Consumption, Tobacco Violations, and even youth DUI offenses.

WHEN IS THE PROGRAM OFFERED?

The YES program is held at CKF Addiction Treatment on the third Saturday of every month in Salina.

Registration opens at 8:00am and the program begins promptly at 8:30am. No one will be admitted after 8:30am. The program ends at 5:00pm.

There is a one-hour lunch break from Noon to 1:00pm. Participants are on their own for lunch. Lunch is not provided.

This is an eight (8) hour program ending at 5:00pm.

ADIS

Alcohol & Other Drug Information School (ADIS)

WHAT IS THE ALCOHOL & OTHER DRUG INFORMATION SCHOOL

Alcohol and Other Drug Information School, frequently referred to as ADIS, is a program designed for individuals who are in need of basic education about alcohol and other drugs. This program meets the requirements of K.S.A. 8-1567, which mandates first time DUI offenders to receive education about alcohol/drugs and the impact of drinking and driving.

In addition, this program is appropriate for individuals who have been charged with possession or consumption of alcohol or other drugs, those that have had an alcohol/drug related problem on the job, or for those just wanting to learn more about alcohol and other drugs.

This is an interactive program designed to help people make positive changes in their high-risk driving behaviors. Participants who choose to make the most of it can turn a negative experience into an opportunity for positive change.

WHAT HAPPENS IN ADIS?

Through lecture, discussions, written assignments, and video presentations, participants learn about the physical, emotional and social effects of alcohol and other drug abuse. A trained and certified Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Counselor facilitates the program.

Each participant is given an informational packet upon arrival that includes all of the materials that are used in the school.

The program is broken into five segments:

  • Why Am I Here
  • Laws and Consequences
  • Alcohol, Other Drugs and Their Effects
  • Patterns of Use
  • Personal Change Plan

Participants are required to complete each segment of the school.

ATTENDANCE VERIFICATIONS

Verifications of attendance and completion of the program are mailed to the referring court or agency during the week following the program. Participants must sign a Release of Information to whomever they are wanting attendance verifications to be sent.

WHEN IS THE SCHOOL OFFERED?

Alcohol and Other Drug Information School is held at CKF Addiction Treatment on the second Saturday of every month in Salina and typically every other month in Junction City and the fourth Saturday of every month in McPherson.
