Recovery high schools provide the structure to help students begin and sustain their addiction recovery.
For the last few decades, movies have made high school seem like a carnival ride of romance, mistakes and partying. But what if high schools instead did more to prepare their students for careful self-development?
Well, at least a few do. These schools are the “recovery high schools,” and they’re helping students begin paths of addiction recovery. Here’s what these schools are, and what they do.
Make sure to check out the Association of Recovery Schools for more on their mission, training and practices.
And look through the rest of In The Rooms if you’d like to learn more about your own road to recovery. We offer community, online meetings and recovery resources at your convenience. And that’s on purpose!
