Prime for Life

Court Referred

Alcohol & Drug Education Class

Welcome to Prime For Life®, an evidence-based motivational prevention, intervention and pretreatment program specifically designed for people who may be making high-risk choices. At Substance Abuse Council, we offer this special court referred alcohol and drug education class as both an in-person and through a virtual class option so individuals in need or required to can attend anywhere in the nation (all class are conducted in EST time zone). Classes are judgement free zones and instructors don’t use fear-based approaches, but instead encourage profound self-reflection.

Rethink the Risk

Reducing the risk of drug and alcohol use is possible when you learn prevention and intervention techniques during your Prime for Life class. Our class specifically benefits impaired driving offenders, young people charged with alcohol and/or drug-related offenses, and those that may be court referred for drunk driving. Because Prime For Life® includes both prevention and intervention content, it is appropriate for general, young adult and adult audiences. The program has been proven to reduce relapse rates in people with a DUI, is evidence based, and has also helped thousands of people throughout the country with education and professional development.
