Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach and Assertive Continuing Care (ACRA/ACC) is a community based program funded by grants from the Franklin County Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Services Board and Franklin County Children Services. ACRA/ACC works with adolescents released from residential care, and rewards sobriety, so that the adolescent continues making healthy lifestyle choices. This evidence-based treatment model has been proven to be effective with adolescents all across the nation.
As part of The Maryhaven School, Summit Academy provides two teachers licensed and qualified to teach students at the middle and/or high school level. These instructors understand well the social/emotional needs of students in eighth through twelfth grade and teach curricula aligned with the students’ Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).
Maryhaven also ensures our clients can earn their GED while in recovery. Any patient that is eligible and wants to take the GED Practice Test is connected with a Title One tutor from Columbus City Schools. These tutors utilize GED books and pretest materials to assist students in preparing to pass the Practice Test and earn a waiver to take the actual GED Test.
