New Horizons

Utilizing the New Horizons evidenced based prevention curriculum, this program addresses problems that interfere with school achievement, both academically and behaviorally. It aims to reduce the consumer’s risks of academic failure due to substance abuse, emotional problems, delinquency, family dysfunction, or behavior problems at school. New Horizons teaches skills necessary for the development of responsible school behavior and provides a supportive learning environment which reinforces academic success.

 

The New Horizons programs operate within middle and high school settings in Leon, Liberty, Madison, and Wakulla counties. Its interactive 16 session life skills curriculum is free to consumers and is provided within the structure of the school day. Groups and/or individuals meet with a prevention specialist for 50 minutes once per week.

 

The program is referral and voluntary based. Referrals generally originate from school administrators, teachers, parents, school officers, other students, or self-referrals. The participants are interviewed by the prevention specialist to determine if the program is the right fit for them or if they need referrals to other programs or outside agencies.
