Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Treatment

no drugs

Harrison Homes, Inc. has adopted the Comprehensive Student Assistance in Residential Settings Project model, which addresses foster youth who have been placed in group residential facilities and uses highly trained staff to provide culturally sensitive alcohol and other drug prevention services.

The Comprehensive Student Assistance in Residential Settings Project, referred to as the Residential Student Assistance Program (RSAP), began in 1988 in six New York residential child-care facilities as part of a five-year Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) grant targeting high-risk youth. The RSAP model uses highly trained (master of social work) counselors, placed full- or part-time in the residential facilities, to provide culturally sensitive alcohol and other drug (AOD) use prevention and intervention services.  Within this model, we have adopted the Project Towards No Drugs (TND) curriculum that was established by researchers at the University of Southern California.  Our professional counselors work with youth individually and in small groups, conduct training for facility staff, coordinate programs and services directed at decreasing the incidence and prevalence of AOD use among our youth, and provide follow-up treatment and referrals.
