Flashes for Recovery

An ongoing support group, Flashes for Recovery is open to any undergraduate and graduate student. The goal is to provide support for individuals in recovery from addictions and now considering the path of recovery as a lifestyle. University Health Services’ trained staff and a core group of student leaders conduct the weekly sessions which provide opportunities for students to share their experiences. Such sharing can assist individuals in gaining strength and hope in their own recovery efforts. An array of available educational and community resources is also shared with those attending.

The weekly meetings are not scheduled during periods when classes are not in session. The sessions are considered ‘drop-in’ with no pre-registration required, though first-time attendees will be asked to complete brief contact information.

Questions regarding the Flashes for Recovery meetings may be directed to Maureen Keating, University Health Services Chemical Dependency Counselor, mkeatin5@kent.edu.
