Student Assistance Program - Granite Wellness Centers

The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is a substance use prevention and early intervention program to support teens who have been referred by the school, the parents or the teen themselves because of a substance use problem. It is offered at no-cost to students, schools and families through a Mental Health Services Act Grant. We offer a 10-week program for high school students and a 5-week program for middle school students.

The Student Assistance Program uses the Mindfulness-Based Substance Abuse Treatment for Adolescents (MBSAT – Sam Himelstein and Stephen Saul) and the Change Company Keep it Direct and Simple (KIDS) curriculums to ground this behavioral support system.
