HYANNIS – The Duffy Health Center has been awarded a grant of $315,000 to continue and expand their support of the RecoveryBuild Alternative Peer Group, an evidence-based recovery program for teens on Cape Cod dealing with substance abuse issues.

The Duffy Health Center has partnered with Behavioral Health Innovators, Inc to provide clinical supervision and administrative support to RecoveryBuild APG since 2018.
