Sober on Campus

My early recovery would have been much, much easier if something like this existed at Michigan State or Eastern Michigan. I suspect it would have also helped with this *ahem* bumpy academic period.

Two Big Ten giants, the University of Michigan and Penn State University, this summer are launching recovery programs that they expect eventually to serve hundreds of students, not only addicts but also the adult children and siblings of substance abusers.

With a starting budget of $10,000 from university health-service funds, Michigan’s Collegiate Recovery Program offers counseling, self-help recovery courses and alcohol- and drug-free activities to help students steer clear of tempting situations. Penn State is dedicating campus space and staff to its new recovery program.

Hats off to all of the students at U of M that made this local program possible.
