Riverside County Youth Accountability Team (YAT), “Recovery Meeting” and “3 P’s of Alcohol”

August 1, 2017 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  learned the danger associated with alcohol use. Students were able to demonstrate the “fatal vision” goggles which simulated 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 enlighten the students and 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!
