Strengthening Individuals and Families Across the Lifespan

Get S-M-A-R-T, Jr.

What is the NEW Get S-M-A-R-T, Jr. program all about?

Educating and encouraging teens to proactively think about decisions pertaining to alcohol, substance use, and peer pressure.


Created by licensed therapist Lisa Werth, LCSW, LCAC, of Calla Collaborative Health, this program is specifically designed to educate and empower teenage students, ages 14 to 18 years old, to prevent, decrease, and stop the use of drugs and alcohol.

Get SMART, Jr. is a five week education and intervention program for teen students ages 14 - 18 years old. We don't want to wait until teens consider using substances that may lead to addiction. Get SMART, Jr. aims to educate them about various substances they may encounter; potential health, personal, and even legal consequences of using these substances.

This is no ordinary educational program, as your student will be given evidence-based methods and tools to empower them to make educated decisions about substance abuse, as well as reflect and understand their past choices.

Cost: FREE

(Get SMART, Jr. is FREE for all participants. Program funding is provided by grants from the Drug Free Coalition of Tippecanoe County, United Way of Greater Lafayette, and contributions to Willowstone Family Services.)

Each youth and their parent/guardian will complete an initial assessment before attending.
