Seahawks in Recovery
There are lots of resources at UNCW for students in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction, gambling addiction, and those affected by other people's addiction. There are 12 step meetings every day in Wilmington; many are within walking distance of campus. CROSSROADS can refer you to campus and community resources, help you plan for your transition into UNCW, and connect you to other Seahawks in Recovery. Call our office at (910) 962-4136 or stop by either of our offices in DePaolo Hall #2105 or Student Recreation Center #104.
Sober Seahawks Celebrating Recovery
Will resume in September
Whether you or someone close to you is in recovery, or you know somebody that might have a problem with drugs and/or alcohol, addiction affects many people’s lives. Come learn more about addiction and show why you support recovery from drug and alcohol dependence. There will be speakers, information, students in recovery to answer questions, and snacks! Stop by after class Tuesday get a little something to eat and show your support for recovery!
The Meeting Before The Meeting
It can be a little overwhelming to go to that first meeting by yourself. Meet other students in the SRC on Fridays at 6pm to chat and have company for the AA meeting at 7. For more information, contact Dan or stop by either CROSSROADS office.
Will resume on Wednesday, August 28th at 5pm in DePaolo 2105.
The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope in order to solve their common problems. All are welcome to join our open campus group every Monday or find a local meeting at www.ncbermudaafg.org or by calling 910.509.2380.
