Collegiate recovery was something very interesting to be as a “non-traditional” student. As a 33-year-old enrolled in a program catered towards working adults I was only on campus every other week (except when I went to the gym…because hey it was free) and didn’t get involved in many social activities. I also attended a very small private Catholic university that did not have a Collegiate Recovery Program. So, my experience and what collegiate recovery has done for me seems to be a bit different than the “average” collegiate recovery experience.

As the principal of The Bridge Way School, one of about 50 recovery high schools around the United States, I wish I had a dollar for every time I hear from a parent/judge/probation officer/case manager/counselor that we are “Philadelphia’s best-kept secret.” I hear similar statements from other principals of recovery high schools across the country all the time.
