Substance Abuse Intervention Diversion Program (SAID)
What is SAID?
The Substance Abuse Intervention Diversion Program (SAID) is strategy that focuses on the delivery of services to a target audience with the intent of influencing attitude and/or behavior. It involves the two-way communication by the fact that interaction between the counselor/educator and the participants is the basis of all activities in the program. Activities influence critical life and social skills including decision making, refusal skills, critical analysis and systematic judgment abilities. This type of intervention is defined as a local program. It is one that is developed within the community, by treatment professionals and court personnel. It is based on prevention theory and practice and has provisions that measure and document some evidence of success.
SAID’s Target Population
The target audience does not include individuals already diagnosed with addiction.
The target population is adults, 18 and over, who already are using a substance. This is defined as adults who may have used or experimented with alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs, including adults charged with driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI), or being in possession, social or casual users of illicit substances, and adults who smoke tobacco or consume alcoholic beverages but who are not yet in need of treatment services.
