Product description

From the Back Cover

Telling kids who are using alcohol or other drugs to "just say no" isn't enough; the adults in their lives need to take action. Written for parents, teachers, family doctors, mental health professionals, school guidance counselors, social workers, juvenile justice workers, clergy, and others concerned about children and young adults, Choices and Consequences describes a practical, proven, step-by-step intervention system that anyone can use to stop a teen's harmful involvement with alcohol and other drugs and start him or her on the road to a richer, fuller, healthier life.

About the Author

Dick Schaefer has worked with disturbed youth for the past thirty years, starting out as a counselor at Home on the Range for Boys in 1961. His work in the field of addiction began in 1966 as chaplain at the Heartview Foundation for Alcoholics in Mandan, North Dakota. Since that time, he has held positions as program director for youth at the South East Mental Health Center in Fargo, North Dakota, and director for the youth unit of the alcoholism and drug division at the North Dakota State Hospital. As the director of the Touch Love Center in Fargo since 1981, Mr. Schaefer directs a staff of outreach workers who develop programs for alcohol and other drug users and children living with alcoholics. He works with both schools and agencies within a sixty-mile radius of Fargo in setting up community network systems to confront youth who are using alcohol and other drugs. Dick Schaefer has served on numerous state committees and boards in North Dakota. Notable among them are the Governor's Juvenile Justice Committee, the Conference on Social Welfare, the Crossroads Crisis Center in Jamestown, the Hot Line Crisis Center in Fargo, and the YMCA Youth Committee. He served on the Committee for the Training and Certification of Addiction Counselors for the State of North Dakota and has worked on the Chemical Abuse Subcommittee of the Governor's Commission on Children and Adolescents At Risk. In addition, Mr. Schaefer is a part-time instructor at North Dakota State University and Moorhead State University. He has also taught at the Medical School at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy from St. Mary's College in Winona, Minnesota; a Bachelor of Divinity in theology and a Master of Arts in education from Catholic University, Washington, D.C. Dick Schaefer is a licensed teacher and addiction counselor, and he holds a Level II National certification from NAADAC. He is a speaker and consultant for the Johnson Institute and is the author of the book, Choices & Consequences: What To Do When a Teenager Uses Alcohol/Drugs and was a script consultant on a video by the same name produced by Johnson Institute. In addition, Mr. Schaefer has consulted on two other videos produced by Johnson Institute, one on relapse Another Chance to Change (1991) and one on violence prevention and intervention in the schools called Respect and Protect (1995).
