Haven Mentoring & Monitoring

is an innovative, customizable harm reduction program that allows students to take a hard and informed look at their substance use patterns. This program leverages recent findings from a Harvard University study that indicate the connection between peer support and positive recovery outcomes ( Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment, May 2016 ) and is designed to change unhealthy behaviors, improve student conduct, and expose students to honest accountability and healthy lifestyle choices. The key components of this program are:

  • Peer Mentoring & Support
  • Individual Counseling
  • Drug Testing
  • Group Support
  • Family Communication
