Reality Check Weekend Programs

Reality Check Weekend is an intensive weekend of immersion in a program which confronts participants with sobering insight into the short and long term consequences of irresponsible choices in relation to self, alcohol and drugs, driving, family, personal growth, community, employment, education and the criminal justice system.

Reality Check Weekend Programs deliver a highly positive, life affirming and life-awareness experience for most participants.

Reality Check Weekend Process

At the beginning of the program, each participant meets one-on-one with a Reality Check Weekend Counselor for an intake interview.

During the Reality Check Weekend Program, in addition to the initial intake interview and a final interview, the client will be required to participate in small and large group and individual interaction, role playing, didactic, multimedia presentations, using guided worksheets, and preparing a change plan.

The client keeps a journal during the weekend, and records insights and what they have learned during the entire program. Active client participation is encouraged and monitored.

At the conclusion of the program on Sunday, each participant meets one-on-one with a Reality Check Weekend Counselor for a final interview. In this interview, all reporting documents are signed, and the participant submits a self-evaluation, and a program evaluation. Additionally, the Reality Check Weekend participant will be required to submit a journal of their understanding, and a summary of their insights, which will be forwarded to their referring count. If the participant has met the requirements of the Reality Check Weekend program, only then will the participant receive a certificate of completion.
