Continuing Care in High Schools: A Descriptive Study of Recovery High School Programs
Finch, Andrew J.; Moberg, D. Paul; Krupp, Amanda Lawton
Journal of Child & Adolescent Substance Abuse, v23 n2 p116-129 2014
Data from 17 recovery high schools suggest programs are dynamic and vary in enrollment, fiscal stability, governance, staffing, and organizational structure. Schools struggle with enrollment, funding, lack of primary treatment accessibility, academic rigor, and institutional support. Still, for adolescents having received treatment for substance abuse, recovery schools appear to successfully function as continuing care providers, reinforcing and sustaining therapeutic benefits gained from treatment. Small size and therapeutic programming allow for a potentially broader continuum of services than currently exists in most of the schools. Recovery schools thus provide a useful design for continuing care, warranting further study and policy support.
