College is a place to live and learn independently.
College is a place to live and learn independently. For some students, the transition may involve high-risk drinking or other substance use. Some students decide to abstain from substance use. Reasons may include harm reduction goals, health and wellness, or even recovering from a substance use disorder. Still others, start college life already committed to long-term recovery. There can often be a general lack of understanding about substance use, harm reduction or recovery among college students that can be stigmatizing. The Joan & Tom Skoro Collegiate Recovery Community aims to provide an open environment that works to actively and deliberately increase awareness and decrease stigma, while promoting help-seeking for students at OSU who are seeking recovery support, harm reduction, or struggling with substance use and its potential barriers to academic, social, mental, physical, cultural, spiritual and overall well-being. If you are a student on our campus with questions or looking for support please contact us at [email protected].
We are here for you.
In 2013, Oregon State took steps toward meeting the needs of students in recovery from substance use disorders by launching a Collegiate Recovery Community funded in part by Pepsi through the OSU Beverage Partnership.
The Joan & Tom Skoro Collegiate Recovery Community 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.
