Potter Randall Intensive Drug Education
The Potter Randall Intensive Drug Education (P.R.I.D.E.) program provides substance abuse services to the communities of Potter, Randall and Deaf Smith Counties. While juvenile justice agencies provide the majority of referrals, community referrals are also accepted. In fact, P.R.I.D.E. is the only agency with State licensed counselors providing outpatient substance intervention abuse services to adolescents in the Amarillo area.
P.R.I.D.E. provides assessments, drug education, drug intervention services, family and aftercare services, and they assist with referrals to treatment when appropriate.
P.R.I.D.E. currently delivers the Matrix Model for Teen and Young Adults, a comprehensive, organized set of evidence- based therapeutic interventions. The teen Matrix Model consists of research-based techniques integrated into an approach that includes individual sessions, family sessions, group sessions, Twelve Step programs, and separate parent and adolescent substance- abuse education groups.
P.R.I.D.E. is staffed by four counselors who are either licensed substance abuse counselors or are seeking licensure. Several counselors are also licensed as LPC or LPC-Interns.
P.R.I.D.E. provides services at no cost to the client. Funding is provided by Potter, Randall and Deaf Smith Counties.
Megan West, LCSW is the supervisor for P.R.I.D.E. For more information or to make a referral, you may contact P.R.I.D.E. personnel at 806-468-5711.
