MCPS Partners with Family Services, Inc. to Provide a Substance Use Recovery Program for Students
MCPS, state officials and representatives from Family Services, Inc. announced the opening of the Recovery Academic Program on May 15. The program pairs academic coursework from MCPS with recovery support services provided at the Landing, a program of Family Services which is a part of the Sheppard Pratt Health System, designed to support youth through the recovery process.
The Recovery and Academic Program is made possible in part due to a $200,000 grant from the State of Maryland. The program is part of Governor Larry Hogan’s $50 million commitment to address the heroin and opioid crisis. The Recovery and Academic Program will welcome its first students this fall.
