Project Rewind is a peer-to-peer prevention and early intervention program for teens experiencing mild to moderate problems associated with alcohol and/or other drug use. We believe in strengthening family connection, communication and setting appropriate boundaries to protect and support our youth in making positive life choices. Parent involvement is a requirement of the program to achieve the best outcomes possible for participating families.

notMYkid takes a proactive approach to early intervention when dealing with problematic issues teens face as a result of substance abuse. The overarching goal of the program is to deter experimenters from becoming regular users.

notMYkid has developed a dynamic and engaging platform, utilizing our peer-to-peer model, to address the impact of substance abuse on the individual teen, academics, friendships, employment, and relations with family and loved ones. All drugs of abuse addressed include: alcohol; smoking/vaping; marijuana; prescription pill misuse/abuse; club drugs/synthetics; and illicit street drugs. A portion of the curriculum is also dedicated to cyber safety and online digital behavior.

Participants explore risk factors associated with substance abuse, engaging teens in internalizing consequences of use, overcoming peer pressure, assessing and motivating change, practicing positive coping skills, effective communication, and looking ahead to a positive and healthy future.

Upon completion of the program, families complete a comprehensive prevention plan, receive free drug testing kits and have the opportunity to connect with the notMYkid Resource Director for additional resources or support, as needed.

A brief screening and registration is required to participate in the program.

Eligibility: Participants are carefully screened to ensure families fit within the scope of services we provide through education. Parent involvement is required.

Financial aid is available for families needing assistance.
