“It has a lot to do with the accountability of being in recovery,” he says. “As peers, we check in with each other about our recovery and our school work. For many of us, doing well in school is as new to us as being sober.”
Moving forward, Young plans to continue her advocacy for the CRC on campus, giving presentations to entities like the administration, deans and student groups and lobbying for amenities such as sober housing. This summer, the organization hired a student assistant who will lead meetings and the CRC effort, making the Traveler’s Club more of a student-led program.
“There is a lot we would like to accomplish, but when I think back to when I was an intern, I realize how much we have already done,” Young says.
“It’s wonderful to know that MSU students in recovery have a home here.”
