Collegiate Recovery Community

Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and well-being, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.

SAMHSA

The university seeks to create a new Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) to offer a supportive environment that strengthens the decision to separate from addiction. For many young people in recovery, a college social environment defined by alcohol and/or drug use can pose significant challenges. Sometimes, people find themselves giving up on college education in order to remain sober.

Research shows that students in recovery who participate in collegiate recovery programs attain:

  • Higher GPAs
  • Higher persistence rates
  • Higher graduation rates

If you’re a Husker in recovery from substance use, we’d like to connect. You can help shape our recovery community by sharing your experience.
