What is MyPrime for Life ® ?

MyPrime® is an online, self-led, personalized version of Prime For Life®. These two programs are similar in many ways - the science that has gone into developing them, and the time it takes to complete them. Both programs aim to change drinking and drug use behaviors by helping participants learn to reduce their risk of alcohol- and drug-related problems throughout a lifetime. MyPrime®  allows people to work at their own pace with instructor processing sessions after each unit.

Prime for Life for Parents®

Are you a parent wanting to learn how to talk to your children or teens about substances?

Let's face it, there are situations and choices around substance use that our children have to navigate. There are confusing messages around how to talk to your kids about substance use.  There is no handbook to follow when attempting to lower the risks associated with substance use and our kids. Prime for Life® for parents will assist with the conversation and give parents the tools needed to reduce risk. 

When "just say no" is not enough:
 

Prime For Life® is shown to increase abstinence and decrease high-risk use among youth. Young people list their parents as their primary deterrent to making high-risk choices. Remember! This discussion is designed to delay first use and prevent problems.
