|UT Arlington establishes Center for Students in Recovery
The Center for Students in Recovery (CSR) provides a safe, healthy, and welcoming environment for students to cultivate life skills and celebrate recovery successes. With a variety of programs and services that emphasize community and accountability, CSR helps students draw upon their own inner strength, develop compassion, and build resilience.
Members enjoy access to scholarships, educational and volunteer opportunities, and a strong network of supportive peers. The recovery coaching and peer-based recovery mentorship helps students manage challenging situations with agility and grace. Members vary greatly in terms of age, interests, and stage of recovery. To join CSR, a student must be admitted to The University of Texas at Arlington and committed to living clean and sober. Membership is free.
CSR organizes social, athletic, and volunteer activities where sober students serve their community, develop a support system, make friendships, and create memories. The activities strengthen and expand student sobriety while enriching the college experience.
For more information, please contact Charity Stutzman, Assistant Director for Violence Prevention and Student Intervention, by phone at 817-272-2354 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The anticipated launch date for CSR is August 2013.
