Youth and Adult Recovery Supports
Alternative Peer Group
APG provides free social and recreational activities, and other recovery supports to adolescents in recovery, or any adolescent seeking a community of sober peers. Typically held at The Bridge Way School on Wednesdays (4-6pm) and Saturdays (6-8pm), currently operating on a virtual platform.

Bridge Way Recovery High School
PA’s first recovery high school, accredited by the Pennsylvania Department of Education is currently enrolling, and you may qualify to enroll tuition-free. Students in grades 9-12 can earn their diploma in a challenging on-line academic program with built in recovery supports provided by CORA.

Drug and Alcohol Counseling
CORA is looking to support new clients via tele-therapy. Those in recovery, thinking about quitting, or simply concerned about their usage during quarantine, are urged to inquire today while openings last. 

Teen Intervention Program
Do you have a son or daughter who you believe could be exposed to or experimenting with alcohol or other drugs? CORA can provide weekly virtual counseling sessions to help address your concerns, provide education on the effects of substance use, and teach your child healthy coping skills to resist pressure to use substances.

Youth/Family Counseling Services

Family Advocate Program
Have you noticed concerning changes in your child’s behavior or mood, or is your son or daughter having difficulty adjusting to the recent changes in their routine? CORA can offer weekly counseling sessions to address parenting concerns and teach your child (ages 5-18) positive coping skills, and ways to express and manage feelings of sadness and/or anxiety.

Youth Behavioral Health Assessments

Student Assistance Program
Have you noticed a significant change in your child's behavior or mood, or are you worried about your child's mental health or substance use? If so, your child could benefit from SAP assessment services. A trained master's level clinician can meet with you and your child virtually to discuss your concerns and see if additional services are needed. If CORA does not provide SAP in your child's school, we can direct you to the appropriate provider for services.
