Gamecock Recovery

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

Collegiate Recovery Community

You're in recovery when you say you are. Gamecock Recovery supports all pathways of recovery, strengthening the relationships, resources, and services that have already been working for you.

Our student community supports one another through social events, informal gatherings, and participation in campus traditions.

September is National Recovery Month!

Please join us September 21 for a celebration in the newly revamped Gamecock Recovery student lounge. 

Contribute to our community art project, learn about Gamecock Recovery services, and get involved with upcoming events.

Light refreshments, coffee and tea will be served.


Peer-Based Recovery Support Meetings

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 experiences.
