Our State and System Partnerships

Our State and System Partners Make It Possible.

"Our universal experience with this program has been nothing short of amazing. All of the instructors, myself included, have observed a significant reduction in client resistance. It is stunning to report how clients are changing their vocabulary and their paradigm for understanding their experiences with drug and alcohol abuse."
Claude P. Scheiner, Jr., California DUI

We are proud to recognize the extraordinary individuals and organizations that are making a real difference in the lives of others. Although each partnership enhances our communities in different ways, they all have the same goal of reducing problems related to alcohol and substance use.

Our state and system partners’ long-term commitments are important to successfully addressing key issues associated with high-risk drinking and drug choices. They share a common view—the way to reduce problems related to alcohol and substance use and improve lives is by:

  • Using motivational interventions that are research-based and demonstrate measurable effectiveness.
  • Training instructors and counselors, and providing support for the persuasive delivery of these programs.
  • Assisting people of all ages to recognize high-risk behaviors and make personal lifestyle choices that reduce their own risk over the long term.

With more than 30 years of experience in making change happen, we have developed approaches to enable organizations to effect change in their clients. We work in deep partnership with our state and system partners, viewing their successes as our own. Working together, we create better outcomes than either of us could alone.
