Campus Recovery Support Services

Peer Support: Our collegiate recovery community (CRC)  is a network of students committed to helping one another to be successful in and out of the college environment, raising awareness of substance use and mental health issues, promoting a culture of recovery, helping to reduce stigma and increase help seeking, and advocating to enhance the resources available to students in recovery, their families and communities.  Activities include mutual support groups (12 step and other), engagement in campus events and programming, assistance with outreach and community service.

One of the most important roles of our CRC is to match individuals who are active in our community with students who want to connect with the CRC.  If you would like to be on a list of students who are willing to take this role - please let us know.  

UMass Boston Students for Recovery (SFR): In addition to activities our community has recently established a recognized student group, UMass Boston Students for Recovery, which welcomes individuals in recovery, and allies.  To learn more about SFR visit their page on UMBeInvolved or email Tim.
