About the Program

    While originally founded in 2015, Kats 4 Recovery (K4R) was recently relaunched under the Office of Health Promotion in Fall 2018. The group is led by the Assistant Director of the Office of Health Promotion and a student worker. Currently Kats 4 Recovery is a small collegiate recovery program composed of members who are pursuing abstinence-based recovery or are allies who regularly participate in recovery protective programming. K4R meets twice a month and actively works to bring awareness to the Sam Houston student population and off​ers alternative sober social events for its students. Anyone wishing to pursue recovery, is in recovery, or wishes to learn about recovery and be an ally is welcome to attend all meetings and events. We welcome all newcomers.

A collegiate recovery program (CRP) is a College or University-provided, supportive environment within the campus culture that reinforces the decision to engage in a lifestyle of recovery from substance use. It is designed to provide an educational opportunity alongside recovery support to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other.
