SAIP (Substance Abuse Intervention Program)
The Substance Abuse Intervention Program (SAIP) works in partnership with Preferred Family Healthcare. Counselors work with individual students to provide a cirriculum that includes substance abuse interventions, prevention and education. Students found in the posession of or under the influence of drugs or alcohol are given the opportunity to enter the program as an alternative to long term suspensions. Each student is assessed and given an intervention plan based on their individual needs. The Substance Abuse Intervention Program is also available on a voluntary basis for parents looking for a resource to help if they suspect their child has a drug or alcohol problem. To learn more about access to this program on a voluntary basis contact Ben Hebisen, the Director of Intervention Services at Pearce Hall, at 636-327-3941 ext 24224. You can also contact your child's school counselor or their building principal for more information.
