Under the Influence is a personalized, interaction alcohol intervention course that works for adults and juveniles in courts, high schools, and colleges.

Under the Influence alcohol intervention is geared toward individuals with high-risk drinking or alcohol violations, such as underage drinking, driving under the influence, or public intoxication. The course includes multiple lessons addressing alcohol's effects on health, drinking and driving, state-specific laws, and alcohol/prescription interactions.

Developing a healthy style of communication is important to most people and considered a life skill that many desire. This skill can be developed at an early age and many educators are now making it a point to foster communication skills to help their students. 

Unfortunately, we sometimes see younger people who show signs of unhealthy communication that manifest in the forms of unhealthy relationships and anger.

 

If you are seeing these signs, know that there is something you can do to correct it.
