Alternative Peer Group Services – CORA Services facilitates an Alternative Peer Group program for adolescents. APGs are community-based recovery services that tie together substance-free social and skill-building activities and family services with clinical supports as necessary.  An APG is a recovery model that combines supportive community of peers in recovery with clinical and family support.  In essence, the APG model utilizes the understanding of adolescent development and the power of the peer group to promote lasting success in recovery.

Program elements include needs/strengths assessment to determine eligibility and commitment, family supports, linkage to counseling, life skills training and academic supports, case management services, career exploration and resource access assistance. Social activities, weekdays and on weekends, are incorporated to model the potential and benefits of substance free living.

APG is programming is held at The Bridge Way School and incorporates weekly trips to various locations in the community. All programming is provided at no cost to you or your family.  Eligible to individuals aged 14-19.
