Motivational Education/ Experiences for Ex-Drug Dealers (MEDD-X)
A restorative justice program
Ex-drug dealers interested in making amends with the community assist in educating parents based on their personal experience by providing tips and insight into the drug/street world.
Participants attend PEP meetings to listen and participate as appropriate. Participants need to be open to exploring how their past choices have impacted individuals, families, and the community.
There is a minimum commitment of 15 sessions. This program can satisfy Court Ordered Community Service Work or counselling as directed by an individual’s Probation Officer. Participants who successfully complete the program get a certificate and the opportunity to stay involved with PEP as MEDD-X Alumni.
All participants must be referred and approved by staff.
