Strategic Partners

We are in the midst of tremendous growth and revitalization for recovery schools across the country.We anticipate that each year will bring more exposure, more buzz and incredible pride for schools that support students in recovery. As a result, we see the need for more collaboration, support and mentorship among the organizations, institutions and agencies that are serving youth and families facing substance use disorders. Our primary focus will be on recovery high schools while supporting the recovery and educational goals of students after graduation.
