Families Acting Collaboratively to Educate and Involve Teens
FACE IT is a program for youth between 12 and 18 years old who may have alcohol, tobacco, and other drug problems in their lives. In emphasizing relationship building and communication, a parent or caregiver attends each session along with their daughter or son.
Participants have the opportunity to recognize the benefits of living alcohol, tobacco, and other drug-free; and to participate in a personal assessment of their own attitudes and experiences relating to the possession, use, and/or abuse of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
FACE IT is offered as an Alternative to Suspension, or on the recommendation of a concerned party. FACE IT offers all youth a means of facing and resolving problems related to alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
Students attending as an Alternative to Suspension/Reassignment have the chance to reduce Out-of-School Suspension/Reassignment days so that they can maintain their academic progress.
