In Recovery

Get Support In School and Your Recovery

We understand how difficult it can be to be back in the same environment that you were before you began your journey to sobriety. Therefore, we have collaborated with several others in the community to provide a community that will support you with your academics and your recovery. Our academy will meet your individual needs with care, compassion, respect, and rigor.
