Recovery Resources

Colorado College is making a concerted effort to increase supports for students in recovery by working with campus partners to implement environmental and policy changes more conducive to maintaining sobriety. We also works to increase our community's understanding and awareness of how perceived norms, peer pressure, and dominant cultural narratives about alcohol and drugs create challenges for students in recovery. We encourage sober students and to reach out to the Wellness Resource Center to make sure needs are met on campus.
