The Idaho RADAR (Regional Alcohol Drug Awareness Resource) Center, located in the Chrisway Annex, provides substance misuse prevention, education, treatment and other mental health resources. It is open to the public three days a week and provides free materials and curriculum to students, educators and professionals throughout Idaho. It offers a lending library where visitors can borrow DVDs, streaming content or curriculum materials, free of charge.
Tours of the center are available for students preparing for professional careers in teaching or other helping professions, and they can use RADAR materials as free resources for their potential classrooms or clients. A free welcome kit is available to order now, which includes a reusable cloth bag and RADAR promotional materials. Additionally, Boise State faculty members created a “scavenger hunt” assignment for RADAR that students can complete on their own time.
The center is administered by the Institute for the Study of Behavioral Health and Addiction and utilizes grant funds from the Idaho Office of Drug Policy.
