Collegiate Recovery Programs and Recovery High School Panel Discussion
People in recovery from addiction face many challenges as they re-construct their lives and create a life-long recovery focus. This is not always supported by society and is less supported in the realm of the education experience. There is much focus on maintaining and mitigating the damages of the high school and college experience, which leaves little focus on creating a place within the education system for this people in recovery. While other groups of classically marginalized populations have begun to find a foothold and support within educational settings (e.g., LGBTQ, gender equality, ethnic identities), those in recovery have largely been left out in due to the fact that their needs run counter to the dominant narrative of the high school and college world.
Join us for a Panel Discussion with leaders in the High School and Collegiate Recovery Movement and within New Jersey and beyond. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about these valuable resources, the impact on communities and interact with the panelists.
