Collegiate Recovery Community

Mountaineer Recovery Logo no background

Creating an environment in which all students of the Appalachian community can thrive and achieve optimal well-being.

The Mountaineer Recovery Community offers support to students who are in recovery; want to be in recovery; or who wish to support others on their recovery journey. This community 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.

Mountaineer Recovery holds weekly recovery and community meetings. Individuals actively engaged in addiction recovery are welcome to attend, as well as individuals that 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.

If you are interested in becoming a Mountaineer Recovery member you can fill out this interest form. For other inquiries or to schedule an individual appointment, please contact Jordan Kessler
