We strive to create a supportive and confidential community, based in recovery from drugs and alcohol addiction or any other addictive behavior. We want to provide information about addiction, foster an environment where students can succeed academically and in their recovery, and help other students feel safe and understood. Our goal is to create an active community that celebrates all that recovery in college can be.

Rams in Recovery Students WalkingCollegiate recovery is support for students in recovery from addictive behaviors who are seeking a degree in higher education. Collegiate recovery programs have been around for decades on a few campuses, and research from these well established collegiate recovery programs shows that recovering students have higher GPAs and retention rates compared to other students on campus.  To connect please email or contact Tom Bannard, 804-366-8027.

College Behavioral and Emotional Health Institute (COBE) & The Wellness Resource Center are excited to part to host a symposium From Research to Recovery: A Town Hall Meeting on Substance Use and Young People on April 18+19, 2018. Video recordings of last years' talks are available.

Rams in Recovery exists through the generosity of alumni, families and friends of the program.  Donations support staffing, meals and events, and scholarships for students in recovery. In 2017-2018, The JHW Foundation has again contributed a 1:1 match of up to $15,000 for all gifts to Rams in Recovery.
