The Decisions that Impact Tomorrow (DIT) program is designed for young adults ages 18-20 who have received their first Minor in Possession (MIP) charge. Referrals are made from various courts throughout Southeastern Michigan. The program educates participants regarding the progression of substance use and addiction, as well as the health and social effects of alcohol consumption and drug use.
We assist participants in conducting a cost-benefit analysis of ending substance use, developing goals (short and long-term) that encourage abstinence, developing refusal skills, and creating a plan to avoid substance use in the future. DIT focuses on the issues faced by college students and younger adults, with a focus on overcoming the pressures to consume alcohol in a college setting where the use of alcohol is seen as the norm.
