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

May 3, 2017 Desert Hot Springs, CA

We conducted a 90-minute Recovery speaker meeting with our Palm Springs, Cathedral City, and Desert Hot Springs, California Youth Accountability Team (YAT) students. We discussed the “3 P’s of Alcohol” which gives students facts about the dangers associated with alcohol use. Students demonstrated the “fatal vision” goggles which simulate the feeling of intoxication and were able to “walk the line” among their peers. We also 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 knowledge about what to do if they or someone else they know has a problem with alcohol or other drugs and needs help.

Thank you for having us!
