Recovery Ally Training: Recovery is Spoken Here (Zoom)

Friday, May 14th
11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Event Description

College students are in the highest risk category of any age group for developing a substance use disorder. Yet, college students are the least likely to receive help, with college campuses being referred to as “recovery-hostile environments.” Learn about how to provide support for students who need help, as well as for those who are already in recovery. Help build a recovery-friendly campus by recognizing how language and policies perpetuate stigma, which is something that blocks the seeking of recovery support, even when someone knows they need help. Be an ally to our students and recognize what you can do to increase recovery supports at ISU.
To register for this training and to request accommodations, please email Jamie Laurson, jllaurs@ilstu.edu. Please allow sufficient time to arrange accommodations. This training can also be requested if you have a team of individuals who want to participate together.
