Student Assistance Program - SAC

Student Assistance Program
Confidentiality is the Cornerstone of the Student Assistant Program
The Student Assistance Counselors are here to help students develop healthy coping skills, make positive lifestyle choices, and avoid substance abuse problems. Some students who use the program are not involved with substances but are looking for help with a variety of personal problems.

The SACs run a variety of programs using high school students to facilitate PUSH and REBEL educational programs. They also have a referral service and peer education programs.
P.U.S.H. - Prevention Using Student Help
We, the students of Hillsborough High School, will act as positive role models to our peers and middle school students as we teach about the dangers of drugs, alcohol and peer pressure.
Each PUSH member will sign a no use contract for the school year. It is vital that you remain true to your contract.
Meetings are held on Friday mornings at 7:00 AM in the audtiorium. Students are to check the bulletin board outside the SAC office or the webpage for updated meeting times and PUSH activities at the Auten Road Intermediate School (ARIS).
Attendance is required at each meeting prior to an ARIS trip.
All PUSH'ers must attend the weekend training with Mike Winchester.
You cannot  go to ARIS if you do not attend the training.
Each PUSH group will be in charge of different activities, such as the bulletin board, a fundraiser, PUSH trips, and assembly programs with the guidance of a youth advisor.
We may not meet every week, but each PUSHer is responsible for following up with PUSH activities posted outside the SAC office and on the web page.
Somerset County REBEL
This REBEL chapter is a youth-led, statewide tobacco-free movement.
Together we will generate and promote ideas and activities to help prevent and eliminate smoking among youth.
