The Recovery Capital for Adolescents Model (RCAM) is framework for identifying assets to enhance and barriers to address in supporting youth’s recovery. We will use adolescents’ and their parents’ reflections and experiences (collected in a prior research study) to illustrate the RCAM and detail specific strategies recovery support models such as the Alternative Peer Group (APG) can use to (1) address recovery barriers and enhance recovery assets for youth with substance use disorders and (2) empower families of APG participants to support the recovery of their young person.
