Innovations in Prevention

Since 1980, Wellspring has been a leader in the ever-more scientific field of prevention science. Far from telling youth to “Just Say NO,” we pledge to only provide services we can demonstrate change behavior for the better. Done correctly, every $1 invested in prevention returns up to $18 in savings to society. Investing in Wellsprings innovative prevention services is an excellent investment in your community’s future.

Prevention

Communities
We all belong to various communities, whether they are our families, neighborhoods, places of worship, or local senior centers. For prevention to truly be effective, it must impact us where we live. Wellspring offers a wide variety of evidence-based prevention programs tailored for each of the communities we call home.

Schools
When most people think of prevention, they think of school programs. Unfortunately, if you ask any child, you will learn that too many programs do no good at all or even encourage experimentation with alcohol and other drugs. At Wellspring, we know our programs are effective, because they have all been rigorously evaluated to document their impact.

Pathways
More than a program, Pathways is a partnership between Wellspring and a school district designed to provide everything a child needs, so that when they are in the classroom, all they need to worry about is what is happening in that classroom. Our current partnership with Carteret High School creates a safe, structured environment within the school to address the social and health needs of students, ensuring that they are better able to graduate, become employable or continue their education, and lead physically and mentally healthy, drug-free lives.

PATHWAYS

The Carteret Public Schools have partnered with the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) of Middlesex County, Inc. to create PATHWAYS, Carteret's School-based Youth Services Program. This partnership creates a safe, structured environment within the school to address the social and health needs of our students, ensuring that they are better able to graduate, become employable or continue their education, and lead physically and mentally healthy, drug-free lives.

PATHWAYS is open before, during, and after school, including two evenings per week until 8:00 p.m. Special programming is also scheduled on designated weekends, and a full summer program is available. Most services are free of charge and open to all Carteret High School students and their families.
