AN EARLY INTERVENTION SOLUTION FOR ADOLESCENTS
Project Rewind is a peer-to-peer prevention and early intervention program for teens experiencing mild to moderate problems associated with alcohol and/or other drug use. We believe in strengthening family connection, communication and setting appropriate boundaries to protect and support our youth in making positive life choices. Parent involvement is a requirement of the program to achieve the best outcomes possible for participating families.
notMYkid takes a proactive approach to early intervention when dealing with problematic issues teens face as a result of substance abuse. The overarching goal of the program is to deter experimenters from becoming regular users.
notMYkid has developed a dynamic and engaging platform, utilizing our peer-to-peer model, to address the impact of substance abuse on the individual teen, academics, friendships, employment, and relations with family and loved ones. All drugs of abuse addressed include: alcohol; smoking/vaping; marijuana; prescription pill misuse/abuse; club drugs/synthetics; and illicit street drugs. A portion of the curriculum is also dedicated to cyber safety and online digital behavior.
Participants explore risk factors associated with substance abuse, engaging teens in internalizing consequences of use, overcoming peer pressure, assessing and motivating change, practicing positive coping skills, effective communication, and looking ahead to a positive and healthy future.
Upon completion of the program, families complete a comprehensive prevention plan, receive free drug testing kits and have the opportunity to connect with the notMYkid Resource Director for additional resources or support, as needed.

What families are saying about Project Rewind
“It was a great experience for our family. We really appreciated the opportunity to go through the program together and learn together. Of all the programs and counseling we did related to our family’s situation, Project REWIND was by far the best.” -Kevin (Cave Creek)
“For us, it was a lifesaver. The program resulted in a complete 180-degree turnaround. We are now moving in a very positive direction. Our daughter’s grades are improving. Everything is improving. The program could not have been better.” –Mike (Paradise Valley)
“My husband, son, and I really enjoyed it. It was very non-threatening, and it was easy to get my son to attend. The advice was very realistic and applied in the real world. I gained so much knowledge and comfort from the program. It has a very positive reputation, even among teens. My son knows others who went through it and no one talks about it negatively or as if it was a joke. Even the kids respect and appreciate the program.” -Kathleen (Scottsdale)
“The program was excellent. I have referred so many people to the program including friends, colleagues, even teenagers. The facilitators were so open and honest, especially in sharing their experiences. It affected me and my son so much. It got through to him. Those sessions made a huge difference. Nearly all of the information was new to both of us. Thank you for what you do.” -Natalie (Cave Creek)
