Substance Use Prevention & Recovery Referral Programs
It’s never too early or too late to talk about tough topics. We’re here to listen, offer support and give guidance to individuals and families. If you or someone you know needs assistance, the Palmetto Foundation will provide resources to help you navigate the path towards recovery.
Currently the 90 Degrees: Straight Up Youth Program is being offered at little or no cost to the students and families. If you would like to sponsor a student, please click the Donate button at the top of the page. All donations will help to cover the cost of educational materials and needed supplies for students to participate in the program. All donations are tax-deductible.
90 Degrees: Straight Up
THE HEART OF OUR PROGRAMS
All our programs are based on one or more of three key pillars:
They may not realize it, but most young people already know someone who is abusing controlled substances. While all ages benefit from hearing and seeing the destructive impact of opioid use, many of our prevention activities involve students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades.
Awareness is a first step. To stop opioid abuse, engagement must follow. Mentoring, outreach and other forms of ongoing support are essential. This includes helping young people find purpose and activities that positively challenge them, encourage smart choices and reinforce their value and worth in their community.
Recovery happens one day at a time. We believe in people’s ability to get back on their feet, be productive citizens in their community and realize their dreams. Our network of trusted community partners enables us to provide resources and referrals at every stage of addiction.
