Teen Maze

Teen Maze is an interactive, one-time, 30-minute event for high school youth to think about their decision-making process. This exercise emphasizes non-fatal, unintended consequences of using alcohol, marijuana, and prescription drugs. The goal is to educate the teens, increase their perception of risk of substance abuse, and change their behavior around these substances.  

After participating in a mock party, students will visit three station based on consequences of decisions made at the party. Stations are run by volunteers from the schools and the community (court, law enforcement, career, hospital), who have a script guiding participants through a discussion about how their decisions affect them, their friends, and their family, as well as what they could do differently.
