Student Assistance Program 

 

The Student Assistance Program is a nation-wide, school-based prevention/intervention program focusing on students in grades 6-12.  While this program concentrates on students at risk of, or using alcohol and/or other drugs, staff also see students with concerns such as teen depression, low self-esteem, chronic truancy, grief issues, children of divorce, teen pregnancy/or early parenthood, children of alcoholics or substance abuse.  This program centers on all facets of a student’s needs to determine the nature of a problem, its level of severity and whether to refer a particular student to a more intense level of service.  The Student Assistance Program is not intended to be treatment or therapy.

Participation in this program is both voluntary and confidential to all students.  Referrals can be made by parents, teachers, other school personnel, community agencies or the students themselves.

The Student Assistance Program is bound by State and Federal Laws regarding confidentiality.  At the first visit and prior to admission, each student is informed of their right to confidentiality.  He/She is informed that all information shared with the Student Assistance Counselor will not be made available to any individual without a release of information agreement signed voluntarily by the student.  In case of disclosed child abuse/neglect or personal harm necessary contacts will be made to ensure the safety of the student.

Our Student Assistance Counselors serve all five Lewis County school districts: Beaver River Central, Copenhagen Central, Harrisville Central, Lowville Academy and South Lewis Central as well as Adirondack Central School. 

Quotes from youth using SAP services:

“It was a good way to get my stress and anger out.”

“They take time and listen to what you have to say then talk about it with you.”
