PRAISE FOR Play-It-Through Prevention Program

“This Play-It-Through series approaches critically important topics with sensitivity, science, and humor….valuable and long overdue!”    Mark Menestrina, MD, FASAM

The “Play-It-Through” series is an excellent resource for teachers, parents and court systems in helping adolescents through extraordinarily difficult and important topics. Its real value may be in avoiding court involvement altogether. I wish I’d have had this program available when I was on the bench.”

Retired Judge T, Thomas S. Gilbert, MA, CAADC

Rozell’s Play-It-Through Program is a comprehensive step-by-step guide for clinicians working with prevention of active substance abusers or addicted adolescents. Included is everything needed to run a thorough and engaging program for adolescents. It addresses the needs of adolescents, parents and the teachers alike. Its content is highly educational, practical, and well thought out. As a clinician with 17 years of experience in the addiction field, I found myself excited to use the kit to start my own Play-It-Through Program.”   Lisa Puccio LMSW

PRAISE FOR Play-It-Through Parent Guide

“Shannon Rozell’s Play-It-Through Parent Guide is packed with relevant information from the start. This is a highly readable, practical, and effective guide for parents of adolescent substance abusers and addicts. Clinicians and parents alike will benefit from the wealth of education, research, and sound strategies in this short, well-organized guide. As a psychotherapist with over 17 years of experience working with adolescent addicts and their parents, I have seldom seen a parent tool that gets to the point this quickly and addresses all the possible angles so well.”    Lisa Puccio, LMSW

“Play-it-Through just makes sense to me. Its style is to the point, realistic, and action-oriented. I love the fact that Shannon has created a process – and as a leadership and career coach, I know that real change can only occur over time. Transformation is not an event, it’s a process. Play-it-Through helps parents, adolescents and educators learn what alcoholism and addiction means in no-nonsense and real world language that will inspire participants to take action by making healthy life choices in what can be a not-so-healthy world.”
