Recovery Support


Syracuse University Orange Recovery Community

The rigors of college can be challenging, particularly for students living an abstinence-based or substance-free lifestyle. For students living these lifestyles, the health and wellness team recognizes the need for programming, community and support. Built on the foundation of support, the Orange Recovery Community is a network of undergraduate and graduate students who are living in recovery from substance use disorders or currently struggling with substances.
