The Joan & Tom Skoro Collegiate Recovery Program

College is a place to live and learn independently. The Joan & Tom Skoro Collegiate Recovery Program aims to provide an open, inclusive environment for students seeking support for substance use harm reduction and recovery while promoting civility and acceptance of others. We work to increase awareness of substance use and its related impacts through education, outreach, and support. Through these services we hope to decrease stigma related to help seeking for substance use on campus and the surrounding community to provide a supportive learning environment that promotes students’ academic success, health and wellness. If you are a student on our campus with questions or looking for support please contact us at [email protected] or explore our recovery support options and mutual aid meetings below. 

We are here for you.

History

In 2013, Oregon State took steps toward meeting the needs of students in recovery from substance use disorders by launching a Collegiate Recovery Program funded in part by Pepsi through the OSU Beverage Partnership.

The Joan & Tom Skoro Collegiate Recovery Program provides an opportunity for students to enjoy a social life with additional support in a recovery-first environment. In 2016, the program expanded to include a donor-funded Recovery Living Community in partnership with University Housing & Dining Services.
