National Collegiate Recovery Day with Sober Redbirds
Wear purple (the color of recovery) and take a picture of yourself to post on Sober Redbirds’ Facebook page, along with a supportive message, or take a walk on campus to look for one of the rocks Sober Redbirds painted to encourage the celebration of recovery. Make sure to share it on social media and re-hide it!
When campuses support recovery through both recovery-oriented initiatives and the engagement of allies across campus, research shows that college students in recovery experience higher graduation rates and GPAs compared to the general institutional rate. They also experience a significantly lower likelihood to have a re-emergence of symptoms compared to students on campuses that do not have collegiate recovery communities.
