“Collegiate Recovery Programs: Supporting Second Chances” will be presented by Mary Jo Desprez, MA; Director, Health Promotion and Community Relations, University of Michigan Health Service; and Matthew Statman, LMSW, CAADC; University of Michigan Collegiate
Recovery Program Manager. The transition to a college environment can pose significant risk to a recovering student. Many colleges/universities – including University of Michigan - have developed programs to help recovering students maintain their recovery,
excel academically and have a normative college experience apart from the culture of drinking/drug use. Research demonstrates exceptionally high rates of academic success and sustained recovery among students who participate in collegiate recovery programs.
This presentation will provide an overview of the national and local efforts to build recovery support programs This program is part of the FREE Dawn Farm Education Series.
