There is No Hero in Heroin (TINHIH) Presents

A new, innovated after school program for youth

There is No Hero in Heroin (TINHIH) is a Las Vegas based 501c3 non-profit organization that has developed and opened the Alternative Peer Group (APG) at Mission High School. APG is a drop-in center for teens suffering from substance use disorder. This after school/summer program is driven by peer mentors that provide recovery support services and healthy time management life skills. Programs such as painting, dance, yoga, recovery related meetings and family activities are all part of each day’s activities.

JOIN OUR MISSION IN BRINGING FAMILIES BACK TOGETHER!
