Our Methodology for PreK-12, High School, Higher Education

We pursue initiatives aimed at transforming the pathway for a lifetime of wellness and recovery from addiction.

And we commit to a methodology that aims to build capacity for recovery paths in all corners of our nation—one community, one school, one student at a time.
