Jenna researched and created a functional model for an Alumni Network for the Adolescent Residential Addiction Treatment Program with YSS. She identified a gap immediately after youth leave the residential program. Jenna researched potential solutions and identified an online and smartphone application that is specifically designed to fill the gap to provide more thorough and expansive contact with YSS for the youth to reduce relapses.
