About the Program

Eagles in Recovery is the University of Mary Washington’s program for students in recovery; we are located within the Division of Student Affairs. We have an accessible Recovery Clubhouse located within one of the residence halls, although at this time the program does not have dedicated housing. Eagles in Recovery is supported by a Chair, who is a full-time administrator in Student Affairs, and by a paid part-time Peer Recovery Specialist. We are a small but growing program, and we encourage students in recovery to take a look at our supportive community. We offer one-on-one support and two weekly group meetings, in addition to other activities, including our Recovery Coffee Bike.
Membership is open to students at every stage of recovery — from contemplation and harm reduction to total abstinence — and newcomers are encouraged to participate and get integrated into our recovery community. Students who are still in active use without a harm reduction plan in place generally do not attend recovery meetings; instead, they meet with the Peer Recovery Specialist, but still are welcome to join us for public events such as our Recovery Coffee Bike which we take out on campus many times a semester.

A Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) is a college or university-provided program that includes a supportive environment within the campus culture. CRPs reinforce the decision to engage in a lifestyle of recovery from addiction/substance use disorder. It is designed to provide an educational opportunity alongside recovery supports to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other.

The ARHE Website is currently undergoing updates. While we anticipate minimal disruption, please email mack@collegiaterecovery.org if you experience any issues with the website and we apologize for any inconvenience.
