Hope For Youth

Town of Babylon Prevention Program

An evidence based approach to Prevention & Substance Abuse!

Through the use of highly trained professionals, students learn goal-setting, responsible decision making, emotion management, effective communication and bonding and relationship skills to lay the groundwork for a drug-free life!

Too Good for Drugs further expands on social emotional skill sets by giving students the opportunity to practice peer-pressure refusal strategies through role-plays and other interactive games.  Grade 3 establishes healthy norms for children, including getting enough rest, engaging in exercise, selecting nutritious foods, or being a good friend.

Grade 4 and 5 delve further into healthy choices by teaching the negative effects of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use on the body and brain, emphasizing the benefits of leading a drug-free life.

Most importantly the program develops happy, health and confident children journeying into the Too Good way of life.
