Supporting Adolescents in Recovery High Schools

April 5: 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm CDT

Registration info

Supporting adolescents in a Recovery High School setting involves addressing their unique needs related to substance use recovery while also providing a supportive educational environment. In this presentation, we discuss the creation and evolution of recovery support services for adolescents within an academic setting, most notably the importance of a strong culture of peer-to-peer supports. We will explore the evidence-based research behind the peer-to-peer support model in adolescent recovery settings. Through shared experiences from the field providing peer recovery support services, presenters will share their experience building strong peer-to-peer recovery support within a school and the formulation of a “true” peer to peer recovery support that provides training to current students and gives them the opportunity to serve their high school peers while also helping to build a future workforce in the field of peer recovery. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will gain an understanding for the need of Recovery High Schools. They will also gain an understanding of different approaches to peer recovery support and what that may look like in different Recovery High Schools.
  • Participants will gain an understanding of how research supports the need for peer support in a recovery high school.
  • Participants will be able to identify strategies to formulate a “true” peer to peer recovery support and student leadership training program.
