The Collegiate Recovery Program at Kennesaw State University believes in building a community that supports students in recovery and those seeking recovery from substance use disorder, process addiction, or an eating disorder.
The Center for Young Adult Addiction and Recovery has a team of professionals that dedicated their time supporting students through recovery science research, prevention education, counseling, academic advising, scholarships, recovery meetings, and events. Recovery support on campus is key to a student's success and to advancing retention, progression, and graduation initiatives at Kennesaw State University.
Our staff present recovery-informed knowledge to the collegiate population, and we advocate for cultural changes on campus and in the larger addiction treatment and recovery field. We have a focus on peer-to-peer educational models, which are highly effective in our efforts to engage students to challenge their own perceptions of substance use.
Our research team has sought to break off recovery science from addiction science, in order create a standalone interdisciplinary science of how people get well along specific recovery trajectories. The study of how individuals get well in recovery is fundamentally different from the study of how they became sick. It is inherently a strength-based and evidence-informed multidisciplinary realm of scientific inquiry.
