In addition to education and prevention, the ATOD Program supports establishing a collegiate recovery community. In this day and age, the stigma that comes with the word “addiction” sticks and becomes something that seems shameful, when it really isn’t. Through a collegiate recovery community, Beach Recovery, we aim to educate people about addiction to help remove the stigma and teach our community the facts about this disease. Recovery from substance dependence is a voluntarily maintained lifestyle characterized by sobriety, personal health, and community. It is critically important that our university campus provides a nurturing, affirming environment in which students seeking recovery or are in recovery can find peer support as well as other recovery support services while attaining a college education. Students participating in this community have educational, academic, advisory, community building, and programmatic opportunities that support their decision to maintain their recovery as well as achieve academic success while enjoying a genuine college experience free from alcohol and other drugs.
