Alternative Peer Groups

 Alternative Peer Groups

Many young people struggle to maintain recovery while navigating the stressors of adolescence and emerging adulthood. Alternative Peer Groups (APG) are community-based, family-centered, and professionally staffed positive peer support programs that offer prosocial fun substance-free activities. APGs create a community of young people that encourage healthy lifestyle changes in a safe, socially-reinforcing environment that is recovery and wellness-focused.

The UNH Institute on Disability has developed a robust model for orgnizations interested in providing APGs in their community. We provide training for APG facilitators, coaches, and supervisors; technical assistance; and progress monitoring tools for organizations providing APGs.
