Center for Students in Recovery hosting National Recovery Month speaker series

In honor of National Recovery Month, the OLLU Center for Students in Recovery (CSR) will be hosting a speaker series. Speakers will be featured tomorrow and Sept. 18 from, 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the Providence Hall, Blue Room. During the sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the CSR as well as resources for recovery.

“National Recovery Month (Recovery Month), sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), is a national observance held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with mental and substance use disorders to live healthy and rewarding lives. This observance celebrates the millions of Americans who are in recovery from mental and substance use disorders, reminding us that treatment is effective and that people can and do recover. It also serves to help reduce the stigma and misconceptions that cloud public understanding of mental and substance use disorders, potentially discouraging others from seeking help” (SAMHSA, 2019).

The CSR at OLLU provides a supportive community where students in recovery, and in hopes of recovery, can achieve academic success while using a holistic approach to strengthen the person and community on their path to recovery.  

The CSR hosts the Divine Hearts Meeting every Thursday from 4-5 p.m. in the Worden Building Conference Room. Those in the OLLU community who are in recovery or in hope of recovery are welcome and invited to attend.
