Leadership Resiliency Program

The Leadership Resiliency Program (LRP) is an intensive substance abuse prevention program for adolescents in both school based and community recreation center locations. 

LRP focuses on substance use prevention, increasing positive coping skills, and reducing risk factors. Without intervention, these factors can potentially cause problems throughout a person’s life.

Of particular importance are risk factors that can lead to criminality, addiction, and victimization. Many risk factors are addressed while addressing resiliency factors. 

LRP programming has three major parts:

  • Closed Discussion Based Groups
  • Community volunteer experiences
  • Alternative or adventure activities

There are three resiliency areas:  healthy relationships, goal-setting and coping strategies.

LRP addresses the following internal strengths:

  • Desire and ability to feel and understand the needs of others;
  • Desire to help others;
  • Ability to delay gratification;
  • A perspective focused on the future;
  • An internal locus of control;
  • Ability to genuinely accept one’s circumstances;
  • A strong sense of self-efficacy
  • Ability to take appropriately managed risks. 

This program is grant funded through ADAMH.  If you would like to start this program at your location or have questions call 614-645-6839.
