Trax Program

Road Recovery’s TRAXPROGRAM is a unique and powerful program that partners with community based organizations, schools, youth clubhouses and their staff. The TRAXPROGRAM offers young people an alternative solution at the MOST critical stage when these young people are faced with challenges of building a healthy network while encountering the triggers of daily life (which can often feel like a rollercoaster ride) that can lead them to participating in risky behavior.

Our creative mentors are entertainment industry professionals who have confronted and overcome personal adversities, share powerful stories of real-life experiences to bring inspiration, knowledge, and guidance to the participants.

Guided by Road Recovery staff, the hosting community based organization’s and youth clubhouse’s staff, and supported by a group of like-minded peers, our TRAXPROGRAM empowers young people of all backgrounds to face their struggles and helps them develop comprehensive life skills by giving them an opportunity to plan, create and present their own live concert events and/or high-quality recording projects.

Partnering with Residential / Treatment programs

Road Recovery’s ROADTRAX program is a program on the road, traveling to each partnering residential and/or outpatient treatment institution we partner with weekly! Our action-driven ROADTRAX program empowers young people to face their struggles and helps them to develop comprehensive life skills through peer support meetings & creative workshops.

ROADTRAX utilizes a unique method of bringing people together in a positive way through the process of creating, planning, and presenting live-concert event(s). ROADTRAX offers participants the opportunity to develop the positive skills needed to achieve short and long term goals as an alternative to the negative behaviors that may have been exhibited in their past.

ROADTRAX partners with inpatient/outpatient residential treatment facilities who provide care for severely emotionally disturbed, traumatized, addicted, orphaned, abandoned and neglected children and young adults (ages: 6-22).

Road Recovery’s ROADTRAX staff is comprised of entertainment industry professionals who have confronted similar crises and now wish to share their experience, knowledge, and resources. ROADTRAX is tailored to meet the needs and goals set by each institution. ROADTRAX is a program on the road, traveling to each institution weekly!
