Recovery Support Services

Vanderbilt Recovery Support (VRS) Collegiate Recovery Program 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 many locations used for recovery meetings such as aftercare facilities, churches, etc. are beginning to close to assist with mitigation of coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to also provide information regarding a critical tool, In the Rooms-A Global Recovery Community:

  • In The Rooms- A Global Recovery Community describe themselves as a free online recovery tool that offers 130 weekly online meetings for those recovering from addiction and related issues. They embrace multiple pathways to recovery, including all 12 Step, Non-12 Step, Wellness and Mental Health modalities.
