Recovery High
There is $100,000 up for grabs for a South Jersey high school to develop a plan for a “recovery high school program” that would team up with a substance abuse treatment center to help high school students with abuse disorders. The money has been set aside specifically for New Jersey’s eight southern counties, as part of Gov. Chris Christie’s $200 million anti-opioid campaign. The idea is for school districts to draft a plan that could be implemented during the 2018/19 school year and would be accessible to students from nearby communities and counties.
