Vanderbilt Recovery Support (VRS) provides caring and encouraging support services to assist students who are in recovery from substance use issues and who are working towards success in their academic, social, personal, and professional lives.  As students prosper due to the supportive recovery environment, they in turn become peer leaders and advocates for new members of VRS.  By providing recovery support, students will contribute not only to the Vanderbilt Community but to the larger community, now and in the future.
