About Spartan Recovery

What is Recovery?

Recovery is “a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self – directed life, and strive to reach their full potential” (SAMHSA, 2012).

UNCG’s Spartan Recovery Program believes that there are multiple pathways to recovery and encourages students to develop and maintain an active recovery and wellness plan.


What is Collegiate Recovery?

Collegiate Recovery Programs are university-based recovery support services and programs that provide an abstinence-based environment. Collegiate Recovery Programs strive to create a “recovery friendly” space and supportive community while enhancing educational opportunities for students and encouraging a students’ recovery and emotional growth (ARHE, 2017). 


What is the Spartan Recovery Program ( SRP)?

The SRP is a program of Student Health Services Counseling Center that is available, free of charge, to UNCG students in all phases of recovery from addictions to alcohol and/or other drugs.

The SRP is not a treatment program; rather, we focus on creating a network of recovery support services that promote the personal, academic, and professional goals of students in recovery.
