Recovery High Schools—What Every Recovering Teen Deserves
Tuesday, July 25, 2017
Recovery from a substance use disorder is challenging for anyone—but even more so for teens. They face the regular pressures of moving from childhood into adulthood, while also learning how to stay clean and sober. Rev. Anna Shouse is joined by Julie McElrath, LMSW, LCDC, who is the executive director of University High School in Austin, Texas, a school dedicated to supporting teens in recovery from drug and alcohol dependency. Julie and a student currently enrolled in UHS share what a recovery high school is and how it supports students’ abilities to fulfill their personal and academic potential.
