Continuing Education with the ASPIRE Program

The Granite House offers Continuing Education with ASPIRE programThe Granite House college track, ASPIRE, is for those who are suffering from addiction and who have either never begun to pursue their educational dreams or had them halted by their addiction and the devastating effects of this disease.

When a young person enters recovery, there are many obstacles they need to navigate in life to be successful. We have developed a specialized treatment program that will give each client the best chance for long term health and success, while creating a sense of accomplishment for our residents. The goal of the ASPIRE program is to set clients up for success once they graduate from The Granite House by creating a launching pad for their future careers.

The Granite House ASPIRE college program track combines a high quality clinical structure with dedicated academic support staff and learning facilities. Clients at the Granite House continue to fully participate in an individualized addiction long-term treatment plan, and may take up to three classes per semester while in our treatment program.

ASPIRE offerings:

  • A combination of college classes with addiction treatment
  • Academic advisor on staff to assist students with the application process, term start and end, transcript transfers, financial aid, course selection, degree planning, learning resources, test preparation, and more
  • Computer learning lab in-house with access to numerous educational offerings and supporting resources through TGH partnerships with regionally accredited learning institutions
  • Year-round academic support program combined with clinical care
  • Homework and study accountability through special groups designed for Aspire participants weaved into the treatment schedule
  • Tutoring resources available to participating clients
  • Support for transition from treatment into continued educational pursuits

At The Granite House, we realize the importance of higher education while also understanding that many of our young men have had limited or no success pursuing degrees due to the throes of addiction. ASPIRE is designed to not only make this possible, but to couple sound 12 step recovery principles with education to increase success rates in both recovery and education.

We work with several local regionally accredited colleges, some with semesters that begin every 8 weeks:
