Results: Recently we have focused on collaborating with civic groups to start Reality Tours. As a result, the Norwin Lion's Club in Irwin, PA started a Reality Tour and the Grove City, PA Rotary started a Reality Tour as well. CANDLE, Inc. provides the Program Model, support and guidance for the start ups.
Target demographics: communities use existing resources to provide an evidence-based parent/child prevention experience that is self-sustaining and provided on a scheduled basis so there is always a program coming up for families to access.
Direct beneficiaries per year: CANDLE, Inc. directly oversees Reality Tours in Butler & Westmoreland PA, reaching over 2,000 families. CANDLE, Inc's Reality Tour Program Model allowed other communities replicating the program to reach over 10,000 participants. Over 250 families enrolled in our Family Health Policy, home drug testing with love program.
Geographic areas served: Reality Tours are in over a dozen PA counties and in 10 other states. For a complete listing of sites visit www.Realtiy Tour.org Family Health Policy is an online product accessible to anyone in the US

I am the director for Reality Tour in NY. We've never had anything like this in our small county. It was hard to get it going, but when do have a tour, we rarely have a dry eye i the house and the impact is shown. We have parents coming up thanking us for the tour and we've even had people come more than once and refer others to come. It is literally a "reality" tour, in the life of an addict. It's so much more impactable because teens and parents are able to see the truth instead of just hearing it.
