Thank you for taking the time to view this presentation on an important program offered through the guidance department here at South Plainfield HS. The ASSIST program is available for middle school and high school students. ASSIST stands for Additional Student Support In Substance Treatment. The program will offer students the opportunity to learn to identify reasons for vaping, healthy alternatives to tobacco/nicotine/marijuana use and people who will support our students in their efforts to quit.
This program will be held during school hours for a total of five sessions over five weeks. During this time, students will work with our South Plainfield Wellspring counselor as well as the school Student Assistance Counselor. Parents and students have two avenues to explore this program. Students can speak to their counselor if they are interested in attending this program. In addition to this, parents of students who violate the substance abuse policy can choose to attend this program in lieu of disciplinary consequences.
