Recovery- What Is It and Why Does It Matter?

The stresses of college life can be much more challenging for those of us in recovery from a substance use disorder.

If you are in recovery, we know this can be HARD.  Think about it:  You’ve decided to maintain sobriety and abstain from alcohol and drugs while moving away from home, get good grades, make new (supportive and sober) friends, and join student organizations!  We know you face multiple triggers that can prompt a relapse or challenge the commitment to recovery.

recoverySeeking and receiving support is important to your success. While family members, friends, and outside programs (such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous) provide some support, many of us want to find other people on campus who can understand what we’re going through as students.

Students in Recovery is a student-led, non-religious support group for Bulls who are in recovery. We’re more than a group who encourages sobriety; we are a community where we can talk about our challenges in school and with recovery, share our stories and be with like-minded people.

If you’re questioning your alcohol and drug use you can take an anonymous and confidential screening here.
