RecoveryBuild APG Cape Cod
A welcoming and safe space
At RecoveryBuild Alternative Peer Group (APG) teens find a welcoming and safe space where they are heard and supported – a space where they build awareness around their substance use and begin to see its impact on their lives.
The APG is a group of teens who relate to each other and who give and receive encouragement from each other.
Under the guidance of a Counselor and Recovery Peer Mentors the teens will be able to unbottle underlying feelings and concerns that their substance use often masks.
The teens develop the skills and resilience necessary to grow and create positive change in their lives.
Our Goal is to help teens explore, initiate, maintain and sustain their recovery in an atmosphere of safety, empathy, trust, honesty and compassion.

If you are concerned
If you are concerned about a teen but don’t know how to get them help, contact us.
It’s completely normal for teens (and adults) to resist help for challenges with substance use.
We can provide support in having difficult conversations.
Not taking action prolongs the struggle for the teen and their loved ones.
