About the Program

Northwest Arkansas Community College’s (NWACC) Counseling and Wellness Center is an inclusive community designed to provide support to enrolled students pursing a degree in higher education. This community provides support for students on all paths and in all phases of recovery, including substance use disorders and eating disorders, as well as other co-occurring mental health disorders.

The Counseling and Wellness Center’s Recovery Leadership Team is comprised of one full-time NWACC licensed professional counselor/licensed alcohol and drug abuse counselor who assists with the recovery community in addition to his/her primary position, as well as one part-time licensed associate counselor.

The center currently offers individual counseling sessions as well as recovery meetings and plans to build out programming based on the needs of the students in the community. There are no requirements for membership. We welcome newcomers to engage within their degree of comfort, and we ask that all students have 24 hours of sobriety before attending a meeting or event
