What Makes a Recovery High School Different?
Recovery high schools differ from traditional and other alternative high schools in mission and goals. ESH Recovery High School combines common core aligned education with addiction recovery supports. ESH provides assistance to our students and their families as they work to maintain and strengthen their sobriety through an integrated curriculum, peer support, family programs, counseling and understanding of the unique challenges that face the adolescent in recovery. ESH works with students, families and their treatment professionals to help support and further the students’ recovery plan.
Why ESH Recovery High School?
What happens if a student relapses?
Who pays for the student’s tuition?
The ESH High School is part of the Union County Vocational Technical School District. Per pupil costs for students are paid by the home (sending) district, pursuant to UCVTS policies and agreements. Any additional costs for students to attend will be supplemented through fundraising initiatives. The students’ sending district is also responsible for providing transportation to ESH High School.ESH Recovery HS recognizes that for some students, relapse can be part of their journey to a sustained recovery. Addicted persons often exhibit certain behaviors which have been understood to: a) signal relapse, b) lead to relapse, and/or c) signal an unwillingness to pursue an education at ESH Recovery High School. ESH has a policy that addresses relapse and is reviewed with each student and their family during intake and orientation.
