Rise Recovery's mission is to help teens, young adults and families overcome the effects of drugs and alcohol and partner with the community in education and prevention.
Rise Recovery offers community-based support to youth, young adults, and families on their journey to recovery from substance use disorder – providing support groups, recovery mentoring, counseling, prevention education, and aiding in the transition to living a life in recovery – at no cost to program participants. Just as important, Rise Recovery provides a supportive alternative peer group within a sober community. Rise Recovery also partners with the community in education and prevention. Through longstanding partnerships with public schools, Child Protective Services, and Juvenile Probation, we are able to impact a greater number of families.
Rise Recovery is the only organization in San Antonio that provides open-ended recovery services with no eligibility barriers to youth and families.
Rise Recovery’s approach focuses on 2 important facts that are critical to success:
1. Youth thrive amongst their peers.
2. Engaging families in the recovery process is essential.
Rise Recovery focuses on creating a supportive family system to prevent relapse and create a healthy home environment. When the family is involved, recovery chances increase by 80%.

Our Peer Recovery Coaches provide case management services and follow-up for those participants that are under 35 and that have been referred by the legal system, CPS or employers as a result of their substance use.
To be enrolled you must attend orientation. Please call 210-227-2634 for day/time/location details.
Our stipulated program consists of group meetings, education classes, social activities, and individual sessions.
Appointments for individual sessions must be set up in advance with your peer coach or call 210-227-2634 during hours of operation. The individual must set up the appointment, not someone else.
We have a requested $70 donation which helps offset the costs of running the program including groups, one-on-one sessions, case management and reporting to your officers or case managers.
There is a $10 fee to replace the signatures on lost attendance forms.
Rise Inspire Academy provides a safe, supportive recovery and academic environment that places high school students on a trajectory toward a life of purpose and value.
Family members of students at RIA will also have access to peer groups and counseling. This "community of recovery" model includes the instructional staff as well, who will be equipped with strategies and tools to ensure a total recovery experience for our scholars.
Students commonly relapse when they re-enter the same environment that doesn't support their recovery. As an experienced nonprofit, we also understand why young people struggle with substance-use disorder. Rise Inspire Academy directly addresses these challenges by bringing the common goals of substance use recovery and high school graduation to one place.
To achieve these outcomes, we have implemented our three-legged stool approach: Peer Groups, Engaging Academics, and Recovery Community. At the intersection of the three legs are our scholars who must first commit to taking a seat. This commitment to recovery launches their journey and is then strategically supported by each leg of the stool.
