Introduction It seems obvious that grouping together youth who are working toward sobriety would allow them to support one another. However, it also seems obvious that grouping together youth who have issues with substance use might lead to increased temptation and relapse. So – is it beneficial or detrimental to group together peers with similar risk-behavior issues, specifically, substance use disorders? Research around the effect of peers on drug use suggests two competing theories of influence: 1.Peer contagion theory and iatrogenesis suggest that grouping high risk youth together could lead to higher risk for relapse. 1, 2 2.Peer-based recovery support programs improve treatment-related outcomes for youth. 3 Recovery High Schools operate on the assumption that teens in recovery provide positive support to one another. These schools provide an alternative ecology for students in recovery from alcohol and drug addictions by creating a space where all students are working to overcome addiction and maintain sobriety. 4 The present study examines data from qualitative interviews with staff at Recovery High Schools to understand how peers influence recovery programming and continuing care support – both in helpful and in potentially detrimental ways. Materials and Methods Eleven interviews were conducted with school staff (teachers, counselors, social workers, and administrators) at 6 different Recovery Schools in the Midwest. Schools were initially recruited for collaboration on a longitudinal quasi- experimental study. Interviews lasted approximately 1-hour and followed semi- structured protocols. Interviews were transcribed and then coded according to previously determined themes relating to peer support. Because coding at this stage is for descriptive purposes, transcripts were only coded by one researcher.

However, there seemed to be a sense that positive peer influence was reserved for particular peers – only those with a very serious commitment to sobriety – and that “other” peers were the source of negative influence. Sense of community – built on the foundation of positive peer support – is discussed as a key influence in Recovery Schools’ programming. Positive peer supports for adolescents in recovery should continue to be explored as a key resource. Holly L.
