The Challenge Program
The challenge program is a combination of prevention and treatment services. This is a combined effort between The Council for Prevention and Glens Falls Hospital’s Center for Recovery. We provide weekly group meetings, individual treatment with a LMSW, and challenging outings which vary in length and activity: hiking, camping, canoeing, kayaking, snowshoeing, mini-golfing, etc.
Youth Court is a law-related educational program for volunteer youth in 7th-12th grades and an alternative to the criminal justice system for young people ages 10-18, who have committed a crime, offense, or violation. The goal of Youth Court is to intervene in early anti-social, delinquent, and criminal behavior by asking the offending youth to accept responsibility before a jury of their peers.
Even though thousands of youth may appear to be happy, they may actually be screaming silently in the deepest emotional pain. Suicide Prevention Community Development, Gatekeeper Training, seminars, workshops with fully developed curriculum (and videos) are available.
Promoting health and well-being:
The Council for Prevention fosters healthy communities, schools, families, and individuals. The Council supports and encourages collaboration among leaders, professionals, and community members addressing the issues of mental health, substance abuse, disease prevention, treatment, and recovery.
