While a student needs 30 days of sobriety to start classes, the intake process starts when an individual can express a motivation to obtain and maintain their sobriety.
In order for a individual to be successful at OHS they have to establish their readiness and motivation in three areas: 1. Education 2. Recovery 3. Mental Health.
Ostiguy High staff determine an individuals status in these areas through a three part intake process:
1. Open House – Any individual, family member or provider who is interested in learning more about the school and meeting staff and students.
2. Interviews – Meeting with School and Recovery Counselor to review student history and assess readiness/motivation to enroll at Ostiguy High. Upon completions of the interviews a student’s in the areas of education, recovery, and mental health are reviewed
3. Orientation – Review of all policies and procedures with parents/guardian on the first day of enrollment.
