Healthy Futures, an Alternative-to-Suspension program, developed by the Stanford REACH Lab
This program is geared for students who have been caught using e-cigarettes OR cannabis and/or for any students who are interested in trying to quit. This program is packed with a self-paced lesson, a group 2- or 4-hour teacher or counselor-led curriculum, quitting resources, and more!
While we know time is limited, the best course of action is for students to first complete the MY Healthy Futures on their own, followed by some teacher-student interaction using the OUR Healthy Futures. Of course, feel free to add additional lessons from our You and Me, Together Vape-Free vaping curriculum or Smart Talk: Cannabis Awareness & Prevention Curriculum if desired.
As a best practice, we would recommend that our curriculum be used as an educational opportunity in lieu of a suspension (alternative to suspension) for first time offenses, but if your policies/procedures require a student to be suspended (and those policies cannot be amended), we would strongly encourage you to provide our Healthy Futures intervention as an educational support in addition to the suspension.
