Recovery Ally Training

The Student Life Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC), in partnership with the Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Drug Misuse Prevention and Recovery (HECAOD), is excited to offer Recovery is Spoken Here trainings for faculty, staff, and students.  Our aim is to foster an environment where students in or seeking recovery feel accepted by their peers, are empowered to live genuinely, feel comfortable asking for help and are celebrated by the Ohio State community.  By becoming a Recovery Ally, you are declaring to students in or seeking recovery that you embody these ideals. 

The Recovery is Spoken Here training is strongly recommended for any faculty or staff member interested in being an ally for the students in or seeking recovery that they engage with. This 90 minute training will be led by a CRC staff member, CRC student or a trained Recovery Ally.

Each training will cover:

  • High level overview of addiction and recovery
  • Addiction and recovery on campus
  • Recovery friendly language
  • How to connect students with the CRC
  • Ways to get involved as a Recovery Ally
