Trailer from Generation Found

Archway Academy was established in 2003 by concerned citizens and adolescent addiction experts. Archway opened its doors in January 2004 and continues to welcome teens who are in need of a unique school setting. Archway’s mission is to provide a supportive and sober learning environment to meet the individual educational needs of adolescents in recovery.

The Passageway Program was designed by Archway in 2010 to address the educational needs of students either discharging from residential treatment or within their first 60 days of sobriety. The Passageway Program expanded to Spring/The Woodlands in 2014. Our goal is to open a 2nd Archway site at that location within the next five years. The Passageway Program’s mission is to provide students in early recovery the academic, emotional and social support necessary to make progress towards a high school diploma.

Located on the campus of Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church, Archway Academy is an independent, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization and does not discriminate against any student because of race, creed, religion, or sexual orientation. Archway is not affiliated with any religious organization but follows the 12-step recovery model.

From the creators of the groundbreaking film, THE ANONYMOUS PEOPLE, comes GENERATION FOUND, a powerful story about one community coming together to ignite a youth addiction recovery revolution in their hometown. Devastated by an epidemic of addiction, Houston faced the reality of burying and locking up its young people at an alarming rate. And so in one of the largest cities in America, visionary counselors, law school dropouts, aspiring rock musicians, retired football players, oil industry executives, and church leaders came together to build the world’s largest peer-driven youth and family recovery community.

Independently filmed over the course of two years, GENERATION FOUND takes an unprecedented and intimate look at how a system of treatment centers, sober high schools, alternative peer groups, and collegiate recovery programs can exist in concert to intervene early and provide a real and tested long-term alternative to the “War on Drugs.” It is not only a deeply personal story, but one with real-world utility for communities struggling with addiction worldwide. Much of GENERATION FOUND was filmed on the campus of Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church.
