NEW JERSEY (PIX11) — It’s a first in New Jersey.
On Tuesday, the Raymond J. Lesniak Experience, Strength, and Hope Recovery High School opened on Kean University’s campus.
Organizers say this school will provide a “safe and sober” learning environment for New Jersey High School students so they get help during their recovery from substance abuse, and at the same time receive their education.
In the schedule, educators said students will have periods of academics, and also periods of recovery sessions.
Organizers said there are still spots available. Right now, they say they expect up to 40 students, but they’re hoping to make it available to more students soon.
