About the Leadership & Resiliency Program

This Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Model program has been replicated by dozens of localities across the USA and in Canada.

The Fairfax Leadership and Resiliency Program©™ (LRP) is an intensive substance use prevention program designed to serve adolescents currently enrolled in mainstream or alternative high school settings. The long range goals for program participants include reduced/eliminated substance use, high school graduation, reduced/eliminated juvenile delinquency, post high school employment or enrollment in college, increased resiliency in at least two life domains and attitudes that view substance use as undesirable and unhealthy. Intermediate objectives include reduced school behavioral incidents, increased attendance, increased grade point averages and increased school and community bonding.

LRP uses social psychology and behavioral interventions to address cognitive dissonance and to support the process of attitudinal formation. Adolescent participants serve as role models for elementary aged youth in a variety of settings, teaching the younger children about the harmful effects of substance abuse. LRP components and activities are developmentally appropriate and created specifically for the target population, and seek to reduce risk factors. A guiding tenet in the LRP is that youth who are taught to be successful in adolescence will continue to seek out a success-based orientation to life as an adult.
