This is program designed for marijuana offenders and challenges the individual to examine their thinking and approach to life in general and specifically about the behavior that resulted in their involvement in the Courts. Possession of Marijuana, Drug Paraphernalia, positive UA’s and other marijuana related behaviors are suitable referrals for this program as a pretrial diversion or as a condition of probation. Exploration of personal and societal ramifications of marijuana use is presented throughout the course. In depth discussions are conducted of personal values and how attitude influences decisions that result in final behavior.
Our program is a one-day, Brief Intervention that utilizes a unique delivery method incorporating multiple Evidence-Based behavior change practices including The Change Companies’ trade-marked Interactive Journaling®, the principles of Motivational Interviewing (Miller, Rollnick, et. al), and effective cognitive strategies based on the Acceptance & Commitment Cognitive-Behavioral Model (Hayes et. al). The class discussions and Interactive Journaling® are highly effective in encouraging the participants to recognize the need for and benefits of behavior change. The class also provides introduction to skills to help participants make needed changes in attitude and behavior with specific regard to illegal behavior. All program Facilitators are certified through PDS and The Change Companies.
