Students at Rise Inspire Academy: San Antonio's First and Only Recovery High School

Rise Inspire Academy is San Antonio’s first and only recovery high school. The most common reason students relapse to substance use is because they re-enter the same environment that initially contributed to their disorder. A recovery high school directly addresses these challenges by bringing the common goals of sobriety and high school graduation to one place.

Rise Recovery has provided peer-recovery support to teens, young adults and their families in San Antonio for over 40 years. The organization also provides in-school group meetings, substance use education and early intervention services in 8 area school districts. Rise Inspire Academy is Rise Recovery's newest arm of support for the recovery community by providing a safe space which allows students to refocus on their education and begin their path to recovery after a period of substance use.
