Substance Abuse Counseling


All residents admitted to the Rockdale Regional Juvenile Justice Center receive substance abuse education. This group, led by a master’s level psychologist, discusses the psychological and physiological effects of substance use, while building a foundation for recovery for the residents.

Each week focuses on a different set of drugs. Participants discuss their personal experiences with use of drugs, or knowing someone who uses them. Each group member receives worksheets and handouts about all the drugs and their effects.
