Botvin LifeSkills Training

Botvin Training

Botvin LifeSkills Training is a research-validated Substance Abuse Prevention program targeting the social factors involved in the introductory use of substances and other risk behaviors as a teen. LifeSkills Training (LST) has been proven to reduce the risks of alcohol, tobacco, drug abuse, and violence among middle and high school aged youth by encouraging the development of healthy and safe interpersonal skills that assist in handling challenging situations.

Botvin LifeSkills Training is recognized as a Model or Exemplary program and was developed by Dr. Gilbert J. Botvin to offer youth alternatives to risky behavior with activities designed to give adolescents and young teens the confidence to deal with the challenges they may face in the social environment.
