College Recovery Communities

College, where alcohol and drugs are often the focal point of social events, is a high-risk situation for young adults in recovery, many of whom may have delayed or taken time off from their education to treat their addiction.

More and more colleges and universities in the US today have on-campus recovery communities, which make it possible for college-age students to continue to pursue their education while getting the support and accountability they need to avoid relapse. These programs may include dedicated sober dorms or houses, meetings and support groups, substance-free social events, crisis management support and academic services.
