ARHE Conference

The Association of Recovery in Higher Education (ARHE) National Collegiate Recovery Conference is designed to facilitate a greater understanding about collegiate recovery communities (CRCs) and programs (CRPs), their essential role in colleges and universities across the nation, and the students they support. It is an opportunity for experts in the field of education and addiction recovery to share a body of knowledge across the continuum of care with a focus on recovery support systems in higher education. The conference facilitates the sharing of national standards, developments in the field, ethics in collegiate recovery, and sustainability within higher education.

Further, the conference represents an opportunity for staff, faculty, students, and community members to connect with one another and gain knowledge pertinent to establishing, maintaining, and sustaining strong recovery supports for students in a higher education setting. Participants will be afforded many educational and training opportunities relevant to collegiate recovery, including continuing education credits.

ARS Conference

The Association of Recovery Schools is a registered 501(c)3, nonprofit organization comprised of recovery high schools as well as associate members and individuals who support the integral growth of the recovery high school movement.

Connected through principles, disciplines and tools that set the gold standard for educating and supporting students in recovery, we collaborate with a broad and diverse global network to advocate for a continuum of support and a readiness for student transition in and out of Recovery High Schools. We provide deep expertise, resources and data-driven best practices to Recovery High Schools through training, consulting and accreditation services, while serving as advocates for the educational inclusion of youth recovery.

For the past 20+ years, ARS has hosted an annual conference that provides attendees with an exciting opportunity to connect, receive continuing education credits and learn about adolescent treatment and recovery support services.

AAPG Conference

The Association of Alternative Peer Groups (AAPG) was created to assist in the creation, development, maintenance and regulation of Alternative Peer Groups (APGs). The AAPG Conference is an informative series of workshops for all who are interested in the components necessary to start an Alternative Peer Group. Beginning in 2018, AAPG combined its conference with ARHE and ARS in order to continue with the collaborative efforts of all three groups.
