Team Medford in collaboration with Medford Police are piloting a new substance alternative program. Post Cards were recently sent out to all families with youth in grades 6-12. This post card was sent home to inform families that a) police will be enforcing underage drinking and other substance use in the City of Medford, and b) there is an option for families to send their youth to an educational course if there are concerns with youth substance use.
This program is an early intervention based program for young people to attend in lieu of paying a civil fine for being caught with alcohol or other substances or to voluntarily enroll your child in the program because of concerns you may have.
You are to contact Team Medford for more information pertaining to this program 781.393.449 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your child screening indicates that he/she may be a risk the family will be recommend to call Institute of Health and Recovery, SAFE project for further evaluation and treatment if needed.
