Georgia State University's Counseling Center is collaborating with the CRC Student Organization, in addition to staff, faculty, alumni and nearby neighbors to establish an official Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) on campus. The CRC will offer various support programs designed to help students in recovery maintain their health and excel academically.
Weekly in-person socially distanced substance-use recovery meetings are open to Georgia State students and the larger community on Tuesday thru Friday. The meetings are in Student Center West Rm 482. Students and staff may email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about these resources and how to get involved.
Come check out one or all of the following meetings:
Tuesdays-Thursdays, 10 -11:30 a.m.
Grab a cup of coffee, hang out and connect with others.

Panthers Recover All Recovery & Wellness
Wednesdays, 12:30-1:30 p.m. and Fridays, 5-6:30 p.m.
These meetings create a safe space for mutual support where we can share our addiction and mental health recovery experiences with an emphasis on hope and healing for ourselves and each other. All are welcome no matter the addiction, diagnosis or recovery path that we choose to follow.
Paws for Recovery Dharma
Thursdays, 12:30-1:30 p.m.
Traditional Buddhist teachings are offered as a powerful approach to healing from addiction and living a life of true freedom. We believe that recovery is about finding our own inner wisdom. The path uses practices of meditation, self-inquiry, wisdom, compassion and community.
Scheduled Recovery check-ins:
These check-ins will provide a scheduled time where individuals in recovery and their Recovery Coach can "check in" on their progress and talk about recovery in an open manner. These person-centered, self-directed check-ins are facilitated by a Certified Recovery Specialist who has lived experience and recovery from addictions and mental health diagnoses.
Check us out on social media as well!
All enrolled students have access to both Georgia State Counseling Center services and the services offered by the University System of Georgia.
