Overcoming Anxiety Support Group

Having trouble with overwhelming thoughts affecting your time in college?  This support group is here to help explore underlying reasons for how and why anxiety affects us and what we can do to instill healthy change.  This is a space to meet with other students who are undergoing similar challenges with anxiety and to build support for the upcoming semester.

Wednesdays at 4:00 pm in Student Union Annex room 2209 (except March 25th and April 22nd)

Refuge Recovery

Refuge Recovery is grounded in the belief that Buddhist principles and practices create a strong foundation for the addiction recovery process.  Wisdom and compassion enable those struggling with any form of addiction to become more mindful of their mental processes while also developing a deep understanding of the suffering that addiction has created and compassion for their own path.

Mondays at 12:30-1:30 pm in Student Union Annex room 2209 (except April 20th--will be held in Student Union 2215)

Mondays at 5:15 pm in Recovery Space (Oaks Commons)

SMART Recovery

This is a science-based addiction support group where we learn self-empowering skills and support each other in our recovery.  No matter what your addiction, SMART Recovery can help you change.

Thursdays at 4:00 pm in Recovery Space (Oaks Commons)

SMART Family and Friends

“SMART Recovery Family & Friends” is a support group designed to provide concerned significant others the tools they need to effectively support their loved one, without supporting the addictive behavior. “SMART Recovery Family & Friends” will include tools for emotional self-management, positive communication, boundary setting, changing enabling behaviors, dealing with trust issues, and more.

Wednesdays at 4:00-5:30 pm in Recovery Space (Oaks Commons)

Recovery Night

 Southeastern Recovery Night is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem, and help others in their struggle with addiction. This Recovery Night is not A.A. or any other traditional 12- step program. It is however, our desire to recognize and affirm milestones of recovery in all 12-step programs, as well as addictions for which an appropriate 12-step group may not even exist.

2nd and 4th Wednesdays at 6-7pm in recovery Space (Oaks Commons)

Enlightened LION

Series of Workshops related to mental health.

4-6 pm on Tuesdays in Recovery Space (North oaks Commons)  Will be advertised for specific dates.
