We know you didn’t land here by chance. Take a deep breath, because you aren’t alone. You are here for a purpose.

At Wellspring Academy, you will be surrounded by people who know how addiction impacts the entire family. And together with our teachers, counselors and recovery coaches, you will achieve your academic and recovery-focused goals. Why? Because you have a purpose.
