If you are a student thinking about changing your use of vapes, nicotine, or marijuana, Project CONNECT may be for you! Through the Project CONNECT program, participants plan, prepare, and develop skills that will help them find their own success through the quitting process. Participants meet once a week for eight weeks and discuss and work on such topics as the cycle of addiction, the health effects of vaping and smoking, quitting methods, recovery symptoms, identification of use trippers, stress management techniques, decision making and healthy lifestyle choices. Most importantly, participants will learn those skills necessary to help them change their use of vapes and/or smoking. If you are interested in participating in this program, speak with your school counselor, nurse, or administration.
