About the Program
Gamecock Recovery is an all-pathways community, supporting one another through social events, informal gatherings, and participation in campus traditions. In addition to four peer support meetings each week, Gamecock Recovery provides students with recovery coaching, referral, and resource navigation, free yoga classes, and sponsored outdoor adventure trips.
Founded in 2012 with the leadership of two students looking for a young adult recovery community, Gamecock Recovery is currently supported by a FT coordinator, a graduate assistant, and undergraduate peer leaders. Our space includes individual and group workstations, lounge furniture, free printing, ample snacks, and a coffee pot!
As part of a full spectrum of prevention, intervention, and support, Gamecock Recovery also contributes to building a pro-recovery culture at USC. Through Recovery Ally workshops, Gamecock Recovery strives to empower students, faculty and staff to make campus more accepting, engaging, and supportive of students in recovery from substance use disorder. Our Addiction and Recovery-Informed Seminar series (ARISE) provides a platform for recovery voices and creates a community forum to explore different dimensions and perspectives on addiction and recovery.

COLLEGIATE RECOVERY PROGRAM
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.
