A personalized curriculum
Performing intensive abilities testing uncovers skills and interests, learning styles and also academic deficiencies; and allows for the development of a tailored and personalized lesson plan. High school programs in drug treatment rehabs that do not perform comprehensive assessment testing do not likely offer the kind of individualized instruction that the students deserve and require if they are to use the period of drug treatment to improve their academic performances.
High school in drug treatment should have programming designed to meet the needs of each student, and this will often mean remedial intervention and study. Substance use and abuse can often interfere with concentration on studies, and many students enter rehab deficient in one or more areas. Using the time of drug treatment for remedial attention and personalized tutoring improves their ability to excel academically once they rejoin their community high school. Some students benefit from basic study skills training as well as curriculum specific remedial attention.
