A Message from the UConn Recovery Community
In honor of National Recovery Month, the CT Community of Addiction Recovery (CCAR) began hosting an annual "Recovery Walks!" celebration in 2000. 2019 is the 20thyear of this special celebration and the UConn Recovery Community invites our fellow students in recovery across the state to join us this year and walk for recovery together.
When: Saturday, September 21, 2019, 12:00 – 6:00 p.m.
Where: Bushnell Park, Hartford
What: Music, Inspirational Speakers, Walk/Run around the park, and a designated meeting space so we can gather and connect.
More information to come in August. In the interim, if you would like to help plan for the event, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information.
Note: Each September, SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration), part of the US Department of Health and Human Services, sponsors National Recovery Month to increase awareness and understanding of mental and substance use disorders, and celebrate the individuals living in recovery.
A highly committed group of UConn and recovery leaders from across Connecticut agreed to be a part of the UConn Recovery Community (URC) Advisory Council for 2019/2020. The UConn Recovery Community Advisory Council will advise the UConn Student Health and Wellness team on issues of strategic importance and provide support and guidance for the success of the UConn Recovery Community’s mission.
Advisory Council’s Purpose
- Promote the URC’s mission and goals to the broader community.
- Provide external perspective and review of URC’s policies and practices.
- Advise on current and future trends that may impact the URC program.
At our first meeting, we had a chance to share our 2019/2020 goals with the Council. We also had a spirited conversation about whether we should adopt the standards and recommendations of the Association of Recovery in Higher Education that were published recently. We are grateful to each Council Member for their participation.
