 CONNECT 5: Find the NicoTEEN-Free You! CONNECT 5 is a nicotine reduction and cessation digital experience designed to help youth make a positive impact on their health. This course motivates youth towards change and assists them in developing a personalized plan for success that is unique to their needs and situation. For schools, parents, and students, CONNECT 5 fills a critical need in addressing the widespread abuse of nicotine vaping and other tobacco products among youth.

PREP: Prevention Resources and Education for Parents/Caregivers Parents and caregivers are the most powerful influence in deterring their children from alcohol, nicotine, and other drug use. When parents/caregivers have skills, knowledge, and resources regarding substance use and prevention, their influence on their children’s actions and decisions increases. This program for parents, grandparents, and other caregivers provides information that research shows can reduce the chances that young people will engage in substance use.

Vaping and Marijuana Trends As a school, child-serving, or healthcare professional, you have the ability to impact the youth you serve and help them avoid substance use. To be effective in your efforts, you first need to understand the pressures and motivation behind their decision to begin using. This program will help you understand the whys of use, employ proven prevention tactics, identify those already using through observable behaviors, and recognize marijuana and vaping trends and devices.

SBIRT Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is an evidence-based practice used to identify, reduce, and prevent problematic use, abuse, and dependence on alcohol and illicit drugs. Caron’s SBIRT modules will (1) highlight for school and healthcare professionals various screening tools available to assess for harmful and hazardous substance use patterns, (2) demonstrate motivational interviewing techniques to guide students and patients towards healthy change, and (3) identify resources should further assessment or treatment be needed.
