Welcome to

Once Upon an Addiction

Our goal is to promote resiliency in children and youth. We support and provide many services to make children resistant to stress. They learn to grow out of the tough situations and reduce the risk of mental illness and addiction. We support resiliency by three main strategies:

1. Botvin LifeSkill Training
2. Mindfulness Training
3. Free Private Tutoring  to promote success in school
