Seeking Answers About Situations

The Seeking Answers About Situations program was started in 2003, after a 12 year old came to the Seeking Answers Program.  SAAS is a support group for 12-15 year olds who are seeking answers, not only about substance abuse issues, but also about many other socialization concerns.  Youth are provided with passes to use the Perry Park Center at any time as an alternative to substance use and other trouble-causing activities.  Some youth are court mandated; but others attend at their parents' request, because of a friend who is attending, or just because they feel they need the support the program provides.  A Mental Health counselor is available when needed.

Topics covered in sessions include:

        Peer Pressure                            Bullying
    Effects of Drugs/Alcohol        Anger Management
        Self-Esteem                    Taking Responsibility
    Best Ways to Learn               Stress Management
     Conflict Resolution                   Setting Goals

 If you Think...
YOU CAN!

If you think you're beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win, but think you can't,
It's almost for sure you won't.

If you think you're losing, you've lost.
For out in the world we find - 
Success begins with a person's will.
It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you're outclassed, you are.
You've got to think high to rise.
You have to stay with it,
In order to win the prize.

Life's battles don't always go
To the one with the better plan.
For more often than not, you will win,
If only you think you can.
