About the Program
The Orange Recovery Community was founded at Syracuse University in 2019, through the Disability Cultural Center. We are housed within the Diversity and Inclusion Center. As a new program, we are just getting started with our endeavors. As such we are a small program, with minimal requirements. We are primarily interested in fostering a peer-based community, anchored within the larger community, that promotes and supports student living in abstinence-based recovery. We are also interested in assisting and supporting any student seeking recovery. Currently we have a comfortable meeting space, coffee, study space, and an open and accepting environment. To join, one need only come by and get to know us, so we can get to know you. We have robust activities here at Syracuse through a variety of campus resources, from mindfulness and meditation programs, to pet therapy sessions, and fitness programming. We promote and encourage ORC student engagement with university wellness programming and various social events. Our space is open during regular business hours, five days a week, and our digital space are always available and updated daily.
