What is LST?


Substance abuse problems are often a long time in the making with early origins planted in adolescent and teen years. Effective prevention can start early by educating your child about substance abuse.

Life Skills Training (LST) is an effective program that has permeated schools for the last two decades in the hopes of reducing substance abuse statistics. With more than 30 scientific studies documenting minimized substance abuse, the LST approach focuses on risk factors associated with drug use. Instructors teach coping skills related to major social and psychological influences that contribute to the problem.

What does it cover?

The LST prevention program is taught through instruction, demonstration, feedback, reinforcement, and practice that engages participants and influences character development. A few topics it covers include:

  • Mastering assertive skills to support decisions, rights, and responsibilities.
  • Building self-awareness skills to understand feelings and personal responsibility while enhancing self-esteem and the ability to give and receive compliments.
  • Acquiring coping and stress management skills to assist with goal setting, positive thinking, time management, conflict resolution, social pressure, and asking for help.

What are the benefits?

Learning life skills is something a lot of us take for granted, but there are millions of people that struggle every day with interacting with others, introspective thinking, and decision making. Having those skills will greatly benefit your life by improving:
