Wake Up!

Wake Up! is a diversion program for individuals aged 12-22 who have been arrested for drug and/or alcohol related charges. This three-session program allows participants to consider their choices and thought processes in an environment where they are free from judgement and are given perspective regarding the decisions they make.  

A one-on-one visit to Banner Medical Center exposes participants to the harsh realities of consequences that can and do occur because of drugs and alcohol. In order to complete the program successfully, the participants complete 10 hours of community service and a 500-word essay to express their journey throughout the program.
