Kent County making a Difference with Botvin LifeSkills Training
The Kent County Health Department is making a difference in the lives of children with the evidence-based substance use prevention program, Botvin LifeSkills Training. Studies show the LifeSkills program reduces smoking by up to 87% and alcohol use by up to 60%.
To date, over 100,000 Kent County students have received the program and teachers recommend the program to their colleagues. "Absolutely go for it! It's well worth it. It is up to date information. It is stuff that is very relevant to our students... ALL students," Rebecca Flood, Wyoming Junior High School Health Teacher.
