Prime For Life® is an evidence-based motivational prevention, intervention and pretreatment program specifically designed for people who might be making high-risk choices. This includes but is not limited to impaired driving offenders, college students, and young people charged with alcohol related offenses. It is designed to change drinking and drug use behaviors by changing beliefs, attitudes, risk perceptions, motivations, and the knowledge of how to reduce their risk of alcohol and drug related problems throughout their lives. Because Prime For Life® includes both prevention and intervention content, it is also designed in a way that serves universal, selective, and indicated audiences with program delivery options for each. This 16-hour program is a minimum expectation in Utah for those convicted of DUI, DWI, careless driving, reckless driving, public intoxication, minors in possession of alcohol and some drug charges. Prime for Life education is also used for minors using or in possession of alcohol/drugs (“Not A Drop Law” violation) to retain their driver’s license.
An understanding of the potential risks associated with high-risk alcohol and drug choices is an important tool for protecting what we value. This program is designed to help intervene with clients who are beginning to make high risk choices. When presented in a non-judgmental way, carefully selected information can provoke new thinking and provide individuals with a solid basis for making decisions about their own drinking and drug use. Results from more than 28 years of instructors teaching Prime For Life® indicate that the combination is effective in helping participants change their high-risk behaviors. Prime For Life® has also been shown to reduce recidivism and increase abstinence.
