Riverside County Youth Accountability Team (YAT), “Recovery Meeting” and “3 P’s of Alcohol”
July 24, 2018 • La Quinta, CA
This afternoon we conducted a 90 minute Recovery speaker meeting with our Thermal, Coachella, Mecca, La Quinta, Palm Desert and Indio, California Youth Accountability Team (YAT) students. We also discussed the “3 P’s of Alcohol” in which students will learn the danger associated with alcohol use. Students were able to demonstrate the “fatal vision” goggles which simulates the feeling of intoxication and “walk the line” among their peers. We had a recovery speaker share their experiences and recount how alcohol has left a lasting imprint on their life. Many of these speakers have many years of sobriety and their experiences and stories will enlighten the students and will give them the tools and the knowledge if they or someone else they know has a problem with alcohol or other drugs and needs help.
Thanks for having us!
