CONCORD UNIVERSITY PREVENTION AND RECOVERY STUDENT ORGANIZATION CELEBRATING NATIONAL COLLEGIATE RECOVERY DAY
 
ATHENS, W.Va. – Concord University Prevention and Recovery Student Organization and the West Virginia Collegiate Recovery Network are hosting a celebration in honor of National Collegiate Recovery Day. The event, taking place on April 14, 2022, will consist of a variety of activities including music, cornhole, a resource fair, and more.

The celebration will be held in Concord University’s ballroom, located on the 3rd floor of the Jean & Jerry L. Beasley Student Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission to the event is free, and a catered lunch will be provided.

Each year, on April 15th, collegiate recovery programs across the nation celebrate the founding of the Association of Recovery in Higher Education (ARHE) by observing National Collegiate Recovery Day. 2022 marks the 12th annual occurrence of the national observance.

In addition to the local events and activities, ARHE encourages remote participation by wearing purple and using the hashtags #WearPurple and #CollegiateRecoveryDay on related social media posts. The organization will also host virtual activities, which can be found here:  www.collegiaterecovery.org

Brandon Whitehouse, Peer Recovery Support Specialist (PRSS) at Concord University, is excited about the opportunity to host the event.

“The West Virginia Collegiate Recovery Network plays a vital role in higher education within the Mountain State by providing services and support to the student body. Hosting CU’s Collegiate Recovery Day celebration gives us the chance to highlight community resources that make recovery possible in Mercer County, as well as the students who are making the decision to begin their recovery journey.”
