Educating youth about substance abuse issues and steps to recovery and preventionABOUT A2A
A2A is an educational program created with the primary goal of educating both students and professionals about the hazards of substance abuse, while training them to adopt and utilize intelligent strategies aimed at evading the dangers of addiction.
A2A is a modern addiction-defeating curriculum that transcends generational and nationality boundaries. The Program has been uniquely designed to impact both young and old, which includes youth from age six up to adults age 21. The A2A curriculum is both proactive and reactive, meaning it seeks to educate the participant in both avoidance and defensive techniques. In fact, the program can be customized to fit the specific needs of any organization’s small group, class or team.
