What is unique about the recovery high school model?

Posted by: HCDE Staff

Three components exist: coaching, counseling and academics. Recovery coaches are staff members who teens can relate to and who have experiences with adolescents. They are considered to be team mentors, cheerleaders, and advocacy in recovery. Licensed counselors are available onsite to provide additional support. The school’s academic team helps students achieve the ultimate goal of receiving a diploma in a safe and sober environment. All students enrolled in the school are recovering from substance use disorders.
