About the Program

The UNO Recovery Community, Mavrecovery, began in July 2014 and is under the umbrella of the UNO Wellness Division and administrated by Student Health Services. Our organization has a dedicated space for 24-hour use located in student housing. It is open from 10:00-4:00 during the academic semester and provides space for study, break time, and includes an office and a kitchen. Our program manager/director is a shared position out of Counseling and Psychological Services and includes one part-time student worker. Our CRP is (small), currently at 8 active members, (down from 15 due to graduation and transfers). Our programming is still developing and includes monthly student organization meetings, access to counseling services, on-campus 12-step meetings, and daily social connections. In addition, we have provided participation in recovery conferences and are active in speaking at local treatment facilities. We ask our members to have 3 months of continuous sobriety and participate in 2 monthly events in order to be issued a key to the Mavrecovery space. New comers are welcome to be involved in all activities including social events and access to our space when open for general use. Our strategic plan is moving toward a fully developed Learning Community with educational and wellness seminars, dedicated sober housing, and access to scholarships working with the UN Foundation.
