Prime for Life is an evidenced-based program designed to provide education, prevention strategies, and self-evaluation for individuals who may be making high-risk choices regarding substance use and abuse. It is designed to change drinking and drug-use behaviors by changing beliefs, attitudes, risk perceptions, motivations, and the knowledge of how to reduce their risk of alcohol and drug-related problems through their lives.
The program is held on Saturdays and Sundays for either 12 or 20 hours (6 or 10 hours each day) and is taught in the Boone County Probation Penny Rader-Young classroom. Upon completion, the students will meet with their probation officer or community corrections case manager to receive their certificate of completion and discuss the class.
Students should enter the Key Bank Building on the north side of the courthouse. Once in the building, participants will take the elevator to the second floor and the classroom is located to the right of the elevator doors. Students shall NOT walk through the bank lobby when going to and from class.
