‘We’re like a family’: Cape recovery high school a safe haven for teens struggling with addiction

Coastal Prep provides students with a safe, non-judgmental environment where they can continue their education and receive recovery support. The unique setting makes it easy for students to find a sense of belonging and develop lasting connections with their teachers, counselors, and peers that contribute to recovery success. Want to know more?

We’re here to help

Coastal Prep Recovery High School is designed to educate and provide services for students who are in recovery from substance use disorders. It empowers recovering adolescents by providing an educational environment that supports their recovery efforts by providing academic programs that will prepare them for college or their other future endeavors.

Is Coastal Prep Right for You?

We work with students who are facing their past substance abuse and/or co-occurring disorders. They must be currently enrolled in a high school – we can help with that – and committed to working toward a high school diploma.

  • Coming from a recovery environment.
  • Living in Cape May, Atlantic, Cumberland, Gloucester, Salem, Camden, Burlington or parts of Ocean counties.
  • Have parents/guardians who consent to this program and will be active participants in the process.
  • Willing to work with Coastal Prep staff and counselors on a plan for recovery, and committed to taking part in all aspects of the program.
