Intervention Services

Intervention services provide vital programs to districts and schools to support students who have been caught vaping, are thinking about using, and/or are experimenting with alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. All services below are free to school sites and TUPE staff is available to provide training, technical assistance and other supports for schools implementing intervention services.

Brief Intervention

EMT Evaluation Management Training

Brief Intervention is an intervention counseling strategy consisting of 2-4 sessions for adolescents who use alcohol, tobacco, and/or other drugs. This training concerns a specific intervention approach that uses motivational interviewing, cognitive behavior therapy, and the stages of change model to meet the needs of adolescents.

SCOE offers FREE trainings for district and school staff; this year we have two trainings consisting of two half day sessions. Click the link above to register and/or to learn more about Brief Intervention.
