Meet Our Team

Program Supervisor, Counselors, Peer Recovery Coach, Student Advisors, Community Partners, Supporters

“When my son entered a treatment center I didn’t know where to turn. By chance I was referred to the Alternative Peer Group as a potential resource. The Counselor immediately responded to my request for information and set up a meeting. From our first conversation, I felt a flood of relief. I finally was talking with someone who understood the issues my family was dealing with before I even uttered a word. …While I completely understand how parents might be hesitant to talk about something as private and painful as their child struggling with addiction, they need not be fearful of any judgment or shame from this incredible organization.”

Student Advisors

One of our core values is to include youth in the design of our work. We hope to amplify their voices, understand what resonates (or doesn’t) with youth and solicit feedback in general. Our Student Advisor volunteers have agreed to provide feedback to make sure our programs work with their peers. We welcome their insights and energy!
