Mountaineer Recovery Community

Mountaineer Recovery Community Logo

The Mountaineer Recovery Community (MRC) offers support to students who are in recovery; wanting to be in recovery; or those who wish to support others on their recovery journey.

MRC assists in each individual's unique recovery by preventing relapse, encouraging autonomy, providing support, increasing academic success, and offering a safe space on campus to process, grow, and reflect. The MRC Lounge is open to students from 9–5 p.m., excluding specific group meeting times.

Individuals actively engaged in addiction recovery are welcome to attend, as well as individuals who seek to support those in addiction and/or compulsive behavior recovery (including but not limited to substance use, eating concerns, gambling, shopping, pornography, gaming, etc), and those who are curious about beginning their recovery journey.
