Mission Teen Recovery Solutions is a non-profit organization that empowers Oklahoma teens and families to succeed by providing an accredited recovery high school, supportive alternative peer groups, and advocacy for teen recovery.
Background

 
"Teen Recovery Solutions saved my child's life because they offered assistance to our family through all the stages of our struggle with my daughter's drug abuse. Today I'm full of hope and gratitude." Teen Recovery Solutions has been offering hope to teens and families for 13 years. We began by offering financial assistance to qualifying parents unable to afford the high cost of treatment, allowing them to get the help needed for their teen. Although this was helpful as an initial phase of recovery, many of the teens returned to their home high school only to relapse into abuse even deeper than before in the same environment. Another solution was needed. In 2006, we began a recovery high school for students to continue their education while receiving support for their recovery. Mission Academy is one of 24 recovery high schools in the United States and provides a unique recovery-based learning environment. However, there was no teen/family recovery community for afterschool and weekend support. In 2012, after a year of research, site visits and planning, we launched an alternative peer group modeled after a very successful, research-based recovery concept in Houston. Mission Peer Group was implemented on August 1, 2012, providing teens weekly and weekend pro-social activities, individual and group counseling, family and multi-family support groups, age-appropriate recovery meetings, and quarterly recovery retreats. "Thanks to Teen Recovery Solutions, I have a place to grow and leave behind my substance abuse to become the person I was intended to be."
Impact Through study-based research and existing model programs with 40 years experience, Teen Recovery Solutions has implemented a comprehensive recovery program for Oklahoma teens that improves recovery rate more than 80%, increases academic performance, and provides the tools necessary for healthy, successful futures. This year, we have already experienced a 33% growth in enrollment at Mission Academy and celebrated our largest graduating class to date. 
Needs
$500 is the annual curriculum cost per student at Mission Academy. $1,000 helps to purchase computers, software, and technology needed in our classrooms. $2,500 is the cost to sponsor one student at any of our four annual recovery retreats. $5,000 is a half-year scholarship for one student. $10,000 is a full-year scholarship for one student at Mission Academy. $20,000 is a full-year scholarship for one student at both Mission Academy and Mission Peer Group (our comprehensive aftercare program for teens and their families).
 
CEO/Executive Director Statement Each year seniors at Mission Academy graduate and take the next step of enrolling for college in the Fall. Achieving graduation is especially rewarding for these seniors. Successfully completing their academic requirements while also working on recovery from alcohol and drug abuse, these teens find great joy in achieving graduation, which once seemed unattainable. Mission Academy has a 91% graduation rate and an average attendance of 2 years.
Mission Academy is a fully accredited recovery high school and is one of 24 in the US. Our mission is to empower teens to achieve success through a recovery-based learning environment. Academics, recovery, and community are the three pillars of this school.
 
Alcohol and drug abuse often derails a student from graduating and from future plans. Too often, students continue their abuse once enrolled in college only to find themselves deeper into the disease of addiction. Early intervention allows teens to get back on track, refocus, and reclaim their future.
 
As said from a student, "I thought I would never graduate and that my life was ruined. Now I have hope for my future and look forward to attending college." As said from a parent, "We thought our son would be a dropout and not have a future, but now he is graduating and his future is bright, thanks to Teen Recovery Solutions." As said from a graduate, "I can honestly say as a graduate that I never had a better head on my shoulders. Today I am sober, go to college, and have an amazing relationship with my parents. I can say that school didn't make me perfect, but it did make me a much, much, much happier, grateful, self-aware, spiritual, honest, and easy to be around person. I was very few of those things before."
Board Chair Statement
As the new President of the TRS Board, I would like to take this opportunity to share with you my personal journey with TRS, reflecting on the past and our hopes for the future. So many have come before me whose contributions to the development and transformation of this organization are immeasurable. Every one of the past and present board members have given their time, energy, and money to building a recovery environment for teens.
 
Their reasons for involvement with TRS are varied, but centered around the recognition that drug and alcohol abuse among teens has reached epidemic proportions and the belief that we can provide a healthy, healing environment for teens and their families. A belief that we can provide teens with the tools and education to succeed in long term recovery, facilitating a dramatic change in the direction of their lives.
 
Our reward for serving has been a chance to witness the miracle of change that comes from recovery -- to witness the miracle of change from family dysfunction to a family grounded in love, understanding and communication -- to witness the power of hope.
 
In just three years on the board, I have seen dramatic change in the organization, both in its mission and its impact. We have tripled the number of teens we touch with our services and now have over 32 parents of teens participating in creating a healthy, recovery environment for the whole family. Through the generous support of our donors, TRS has been able to grow to near capacity, increase capable staff and teachers, and begin budgeting for even more growth.
 
Personally, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the vision and foundations laid by the early board members and current board members. I consider it our duty to carry their mission forward with the same passion, dedication, and commitment. May we always be guided by the power of hope.
