BROOKLYN ALCOHOL EDUCATION PROGRAM

 

FEATURED STORY:

“Actually at first I thought it was a joke. But over time it made me realize how dangerous and dumb I was before I got caught drinking and driving. It is a great program because it makes you open your eyes.” – J.T.

The Brooklyn Alcohol Education Program promotes public safety by educating participants on the disease concepts of alcohol abuse and dependency.

Participants are referred from the Court, the Department of Probation and the Division of Parole and attend a 5 week, 12 ½ hour educational series of groups. During the groups participants engage in interactive journaling, self growth and enhancement activities to learn about the use and abuse of alcohol and develop a plan of action to begin to change their behavior. Participants are expected to attend 4 of 5 sessions and receive a score of at least 64% on the course post test to receive successful completion. If it is determined that the individual is in need of treatment for alcohol dependence, he or she will be referred to an OASAS licensed alcohol treatment program.

Participants use interactive journaling, self growth and enhancement activities to learn about the use and abuse of alcohol and develop a plan of action to begin to change their behavior.

Class topics include:

  • Change vs. Consequences
  • Alcohol, Drugs, Driving & You
  • Use, Misuse, Abuse & Addiction
  • Personal Change Plan
