We serve as a reliable haven for those experiencing difficulties with drug addiction, alcoholism, and compulsive gambling.

THE PROJECT SAFE SCHOOL PROGRAM
Project SAFE is a school-based, prevention skills program that uses a 900-page, 30-week curriculum that was formulated especially for The SAFE Foundation. The program focuses on promoting self-esteem and healthy living, as well as on problems associated with alcohol, drugs, and gambling. Specially trained SAFE teachers teach students in the 5th-12th grades about family structure and relationships, peer pressure, anger management, coping skills, stress, bullying, competition, body image and values. Project SAFE aims to provide each student the opportunity to grow and to develop the personal, social, and resistance skills they need to successfully navigate through life. Currently, Project SAFE reaches over 6,000 students each year in North and South America.
THE SAFE & SOUND TRAINING INSTITUTE
