A Note From The Director...
Happy New Year! This is the traditional time of the year for setting goals. It is called making a New Year's resolution. When we make resolutions, we promise to do an act of self-improvement for the coming year. A major focus for our students is setting goals for their recovery and their academic success. Each day they are working to improve themselves. We are so fortunate to have comprehensive counselors on hand each day to meet one on one with our students and to work in group therapy to assist them. Through their intense therapy they set individualized standards that will allow them to have success when they exit the program.
In addition, our Odyssey-ware works with our students independently, meeting their academic needs for their current grade level. Miss Samantha Reeves, our classroom teacher, assist them as they pace their way through their classes.Samantha is able to tailor her lessons to meet the student's daily instructional needs while addressing the diverse learning styles of the students. The lessons, assessments, and instructional tools are designed to equip our students with resources for academic success. The lessons incorporate a mix of grade appropriate text, direct instruction videos, learning activities and games to help reinforce their learning needs. Maintaining the student's academics is one of their goals and we are happy to be able to assist them with this journey.
So let's bring on the new year and new resolutions that will assure that our juveniles are successful in their journey through their recovery.

What makes SHARP the best choice for a referral?
SHARP is the first court-administered adolescent substance abuse treatment program in Michigan to offer all phases of treatment: stabilization, assessment, treatment and transition services, as well as, meeting education requirements from one location. For the past 16 years, Charlevoix County Probate & Family Court has successfully provided adolescent substance abuse program services, and based on that experience results reveal that many teenagers abusing substances are also struggling with unresolved traumatic stress and emotional issues, which frequently and directly contributes to their substance abuse. Therefore, this newly enhanced program will address the deficit in traditional substance abuse programs that leave unresolved emotional, mental and traumatic stress issues unaddressed.
