A Second Chance for Youth in Recovery
The ABCD William J. Ostiguy High School is an alternative high school for young people who struggle to succeed in conventional public high school environments due to a history of substance abuse.
Since 2006, the school has offered a safe, sober environment in which youth in recovery develop the skills and strengths needed for their success. All students develop an Individual Service Strategy (ISS) plan containing skills assessment and self-determined goals and action steps for educational, career, and personal development. Students attend daily recovery sessions and are involved in after school, extracurricular, and summer activities. The goal of the program is for the students to remain substance free, achieve their goals, and receive a high school diploma.
Ostiguy High primarily serves students from Greater Boston, but accepts referrals from across Eastern Massachusetts.
