Meet Tuggles, Carmen & Wagner

In the Fall, we teach the Too Good For Violence curriculum; in the spring we teach the Too Good For Drugs. Both programs are put out by our friends at the Mendez Foundation. Here is a link to their website: http://www.toogoodprograms.org/.  We will be working with grades K-HS, focusing on issues such as goal setting, decision making, stress management, as well as particular substances in a grade appropriate manner. 

To help us in the younger grades we have animal puppets that we use.

Thank you for supporting us: We are all EMPOWERED BY CHOICE. 

Prevention Update 2/14/2017

Happy Valentines Day! Apologies for not updating the blog the last 2 weeks. We have had a lot going on. In last two weeks, we have added another school into our Too Good For Drugs rotation. Margaretville Central School is now where Justin and Amanda spend their Wednesdays. We are able to work with the entire school population in grades K-HS. We are very excited. So for those of you keeping score at home, our weeks are filling up with a different school each day. Tuesday is our South Kortright day, and now Wednesdays we are at MCS. 

Another wonderful opportunity we had is to be on the radio station in Roxbury. Our friends at WIOX 91.3 FM invited Courtney and Justin for "Wellness Wednesday" with host John Riedl and Joyce St. George. Courtney was able to have an in-depth discussion revolving around recovery as a whole and her job as a Recovery Coach. Below is a picture of this fantastic experience. 

So again, we apologize for the lack of communication in the last few weeks but we have been busy. Things are staying crazy (in a good way of course) for us here at ADAC and we look forward to serving our community in any way we can! Ultimately we want everyone to realize that they can be EMPOWERED BY CHOICE.
