SHS Marijuana Intervention & Support (1 of 8)

This is a small group, psycho-educational support meeting for students to explore their own choices around marijuana use. In a supportive setting, students will learn strategies to make more positive choices, address adolescent issues pertaining to marijuana use, difficult decision-making, self-esteem, stress management, resiliency, goal-setting and motivation to change. Meetings are facilitated by Caron’s Student Assistance Program for 8 weeks.

This is the only group planned for this school year. The group will meet weekly during third lunch and H Block (12:44-1:39pm) on Fridays, October 18 through December 18, 2019. Your child may miss some academic classes in order to participate in this group and will not be penalized. However, your child will be responsible for obtaining and completing any missed school work.  The group is a positive addition to your child’s school day.

If you feel that your child may benefit from this group, please contact Jen Lopes, School Adjustment Counselor at jlopes@scit.org ot 781-545-8750 x 102 with any questions. A signed permission slip is required.
