According to the Association for Recovery in Higher Education, “Collegiate recovery” is the college or university program that specifically serves to support students in recovery from substance use within their institution of higher education. This includes students that are currently in recovery, those thinking about recovery or those that are supportive of recovery. Collegiate recovery programs (CRPs) or communities (CRCs) have been developed on campuses across the United States and are growing in number today.
Blake Schneider is the Program Coordinator at Mississippi State University. Blake proactively takes measures to help with the startup of Collegiate Recovery Efforts in the Southeastern region while working to enhance collaboration and cohesion among universities in the Southeast. Come listen to his story and how his work impacts the lives of students wanting the college experience while in recovery.
