Support for students in recovery
A new program, the Collegiate Recovery Community, is available on campus to provide support services for students recovering from alcohol and drug addictions and eating disorders.
Housed at 216 Memorial Hall, the community offers an environment where students recovering from addiction can find peer support and other services while navigating their college experience.
To be part of the community, students must have six months of continuous sobriety and abstinence from disordered eating behaviors. In addition, they must be active in a 12-step community. The weekly programs, including Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Eating Disorders Anonymous, are held at the Collegiate Recovery Community and are open to anyone needing the support.
This program is supported by a donation from Jack and Nancy Fontaine, whose philanthropy has also supported the John Fontaine Jr. Center for Alcohol Awareness and Education.
