New Horizons

New Horizons is an evidence-based Substance Abuse Prevention program that addresses social issues among teens and young adults that have the potential to interfere with personal achievement. The 16-session life skills curriculum aims to reduce individual risk of drug use, school delinquency, and unhealthy anger outbursts by encouraging the use of effective and lasting self-management and interpersonal skills.

New Horizons strives to assist youth in the development of constructive decision-making strategies by offering a safe and supportive environment to increase positive and responsible behavior at school and in the community.

This voluntary in-school program is currently being offered to middle and high school aged youth across Leon, Madison, and Wakulla counties. Students at participating schools have the opportunity to work with a Health and Wellness Specialist on an individual or group level to develop the skills necessary to reach their personal success.

New Horizons is currently being offered at the following school locations:

Leon County:
  • Middle schools: Cobb, Deerlake, Fairview, Florida High, Montford, Nims, RAA, and Swiftcreek
  • High Schools: Chiles, Godby, Leon, Lincoln, Rickards, SAIL
