"Throughout my twenty-five years in education, I have viewed numerous school assemblies and presentations intended to motivate adolescents to make good decisions. A few of the better ones even have urged teens to reach out for help when faced with struggles. None have come close to delivering the message the way the young participants of Road Recovery have delivered it here in Warwick Valley High School. It is a message framed with honesty, integrity, and love. Most importantly, as a school instructional leader I clearly recognize the powerful connection Road Recovery outreach programs have consistently made between performance venue and curricular activities in the classroom. To any school leaders wishing to develop strong character education programs, consider placing Road Recovery at the core of your efforts. Your students will thank you."

"It is extremely important to note that for those participants who did experience relapse, ALL the participants were back into the mix within a 48-hour period. Such actions are extremely rare for adolescents, which further supports the power of the group and Road Recovery’s program." - *Dr. Thomas McClellan*, Executive Director, from the University of Pennsylvania’s Treatment Research Institute (TRI).
