Taking the High Road – Facilitator’s Guide
Taking the High Road is a completely new and unique 41-page drug education workbook and program for offenders at all levels of criminal justice — drug courts, parole and probation, community corrections, jails, and prisons. It utilizes an approach of brutal honesty and openness and has participants share their ideas, thoughts, and experiences in a group format. The program can be operated as an educational class or in an open-ended group. Traditional drug education for offenders attempts to scare participants but, as all criminal justice professionals know that approach simply has no discernible effect on this population. The program consists of eight modules where participants first road the relevant module and answer questions posed at the conclusion of each. in group each participant then shares his or her response with the group.
