Substance Abuse Prevention and Education

Gamecock Recovery

We promote a nurturing campus and community environment to ensure that all students in recovery can achieve academic and personal success.

Peer-Based Recovery Support

We offer a variety of recovery meetings throughout the week. Peer-based recovery supports (also known as mutual support or self-help groups) facilitate the exchange of recovery skills, sharing of challenges, and celebration of successes among people with similar experience.

Gamecock Recovery meetings are not held on official university holidays or during academic recess. Please consult the academic calendar for more information.

All Recovery meetings are based on the idea that there are great benefits to bringing people together from multiple recovery pathways. This meeting honors all pathways of recovery, acknowledging that each person’s path is unique and reflects their personal strengths. These meetings are an opportunity for social support that focuses on the hope and healing found in recovery and to connect with others who are initiating and maintaining a recovery lifestyle.

This is CLOSED meeting, intended only for UofSC students, faculty, and staff who identify as being in recovery, seeking recovery, and/or impacted by addiction in their relationships. All are welcome, regardless of their primary recovery pathway.

When: Wednesdays at 6 p.m.
Where: Wellness & Fitness Center #301D  and virtually
