Opportunities for Discovery, Exploration, and Success


truenorth The True North framework for integrated student services responds to risk factors that exist within the school and community environment. The central idea is to provide full integration of the program elements (prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery support efforts) in a least restrictive level of care that will enhance student completion and success in their K-12 experience. Barrier reduction is one of the key strategies of the program so that students and families have access to services at a variety of levels. 


True North aims to motivate students to make the connection between risky behavior and negative consequences that often have permanent results to their lives.  The underlying goal for the model is to create a climate that allows students to Discover what behaviors they are engaged in that may be harmful, Explore a variety of scenarios and options available to them, and ultimately experience Success in their life’s decisions.
