The Spartan Recovery Program
Spartan Recovery Program at UNC-Greensboro receives recognition as an honoree of the Recovery Champions and Allies Award.
Nominations were submitted by peers and colleagues, both locally and nationally. The award is meant to highlight those who have dedicated their passion, time and energies into making a difference for those in mental health and addiction recovery.
The award was presented at the Enlighten Recovery Mindful Recovery & Wellness 2018 Symposium on Friday, October 26, 2018, at the Statesville Civic Center in Statesville, North Carolina.
The Spartan Recovery Program is a program of Student Health Services, located in the Counseling Center. The program is available, free of charge, to UNCG students in all phases of recovery from addictions to alcohol and/or other drugs. The Spartan Recovery Program is not a treatment program; rather, it focuses on creating a network of recovery support services that promote the personal, academic and professional goals of students in recovery.
In additional news, the Spartan Recovery Program hosted the fourth annual Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Recovery Conference with student participants from Washington, DC, West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina. Participants gathered at Kaplan Center and had the opportunity to be inspired by student speakers who shared how their Collegiate Recovery Communities (CRCs) have positively impacted their college experience and their recovery. Break-out sessions featured how to increase diversity within CRCs, collaboration with community colleges and Narcan training. The original student members of Spartan Recovery were honored, and they shared their experiences and insight that led to the solid foundation that SRP stands on today. Evening activities were held at Piney Lake. A good time was had by all and it was a great opportunity to showcase the Spartan Recovery Program and UNC Greensboro.
