COLLEGIATE RECOVERY PRIMER: REDUCING STIGMA AND ENHANCING ACCESS FOR STUDENTS IN ADDICTION AND RECOVERY DR. REBECCA CALDWELL, UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA AIMEE HOURIGAN, UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA WILMINGTON OBJECTIVES The participant should be able to: Describe the key elements of collegiate recovery programs, including the current literature base. Engage students who are in addition and recovery through enhanced skills and a stronger working knowledge of relevant issues. WHAT IS A COLLEGIATE RECOVERY PROGRAM? An innovate and growing model of peer-driven recovery support delivered on college campuses. (Laudet, 2014) CRP s strive to create a campus-based recovery-friendly space and supportive social community to enhance educational opportunities while supporting students continued recovery and emotional growth. (Harris et al., 2008). Recovery-support infrastructure WHAT IS A COLLEGIATE RECOVERY PROGRAM? Reflects the national movement in addiction treatment from an acute care to continuum care model. SAMHSA promotes a recovery-oriented chronic care approach to SUDs. Recovery support systems (RSS), including peer-based support are a key component of a continuum of care model. Peer-based RSS are a key component of the ONDCP National Drug Strategy. U.S. Dept. of Ed. goal of ensuring a continuum of care from high school to college to post-graduation (Dickard et al., 2011) OVERVIEW OF COLLEGIATE RECOVERY PROGRAMS AND MOVEMENT There were 4 C.R.P.s in 2003, 29 programs in 2008, and over 100 at this time. Early full-service programs: Texas Tech, Rutgers, & Augsburg Explosion of start-up programs since 2012 Many received start-up funds from Transforming Youth Recovery What does the future hold? Recovery high schools Informed consumers WHAT CAN COLLEGIATE RECOVERY PROGRAMS INCLUDE: Identified space on campus Identified resource person on campus Opportunities for formal and informal peer support Seminar class or program series to address recovery-related issues Access for mutual support, such as 12-step meetings, on campus Support groups and individual counseling services Formal application process and parameters of membership Scholarships and other financial support On-campus housing or roommate matching services WHAT MOST COLLEGIATE RECOVERY PROGRAMS DO NOT DO: Accept mandated referrals from the college, the criminal justice system, or families Drug test. Core belief that the students and the community will reveal relapse. End membership or service access when relapse occurs Relapse is addressing rapidly with a treatment plan including re-entry into the community in appropriate manner. ARE COLLEGIATE RECOVERY PROGRAMS EFFECTIVE? Larger scale studies are underway. Site-level outcomes include: Low relapse rate: CRPs report a 0-25% relapse rate, with a 8% average. In comparison, over 60-79% of people attending treatment relapse within 1 year of treatment. Strong academic achievement: CRP s often boast a higher average G.P.A. and a higher graduate rate than the campus average. WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT STUDENTS WHO PARTICIPATE IN COLLEGIATE RECOVERY PROGRAMS? First national study published in 2015 (Laudet et al., 2015) 486 of 600 possible students from 29 CRPs responded (81% response rate) Participants: Most were male (57%), over 91% were Caucasian Mean age was 26. Most were full-time students who lived off-campus. Of those with roommates, half live with someone in recovery, although a quarter lives with someone actively using. Mean days without a drink: 952 Mean days since last drug use: 1053 WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT STUDENTS WHO PARTICIPATE IN COLLEGIATE RECOVERY PROGRAMS? Average lifetime severity of addiction was high. 75% had been diagnosed with a mental health disorder. Top three conditions: depression (74%), anxiety disorders (48%), and bipolar (23%). 76.5% were currently taking medications for mental health disorders. Most considered themselves in recovery from more than one substance, including behavioral addiction: disordered eating (15.6%), self-harm (10.5%), and sex and/or love addiction (9.5%). Up to 1 in 6 participants considered themselves in recovery from a behavioral addiction. A similar percentage were actively engaged in a behavioral addiction at this time of study. PROGRAM EXAMPLE: UNCW CRC HAWKS UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA WILMINGTON Public 4-Year Institution in southeastern North Carolina 5 miles from Atlantic Ocean Enrollment: 13,000 undergrad, 1,600 graduate 65% female, 35% male 85% white, 5 % African- American 3rd most competitive state institution for admissions after flagships (Chapel Hill & NC State) UNCW CROSSROADS 25 year-old substance abuse prevention & education program Campus-based prevention efforts based on harm reduction & environmental management principles.

Theorized relationship between recovery capital and addiction remission (Kelly & Hoeppner, 2014) MANY PATHWAYS TO RECOVERY Professional treatment Mutual support, including 12-step programs Faith-based/religious Medication-assisted Criminal justice/drug court Natural recovery RESEARCH INSIGHT: MUTUAL SUPPORT GROUPS AND YOUNG PEOPLE John Kelly, MGH and Harvard Medical School (2014): 12-step participants appears to help young people across time. Young people-specific meeting can engage new people, but a mix of ages and lengths of recovery is therapeutically optimal. There is an observed relationships between 3x per week attendance and complete abstinence early post recovery. Weekly or twice weekly meetings may be effective until five years when the relapse rate falls below 15% EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES START WITH ADDRESSING STIGMA Substance use disorder remains #1 stigmatized health condition Americans generally believe that recovering alcoholics or drug addicts are still trying to achieve sobriety. Language conveys knowledge and reduces stigma Person with a substance abuse disorder vs. addict Person living in recovery vs. recovering addict LANGUAGE OF RECOVERY Current Terminology Substance Abuse Addict Drug of choice Relapse is part of addiction Clean / sober Dirty test / dirty urine Self help group Suggestions Substance Use Disorder A person with substance use disorder A person who is addicted to ( ) Drug of use Recurrence is common in a chronic, progressive disease Drug Free Positive drug test Mutual aid group EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES: Be curious Use non-stigmatizing language Affirm strengths and commitment Ask about associated issues: recovery from multiple SUDs, active or recovering from behavioral addictions, mental health concerns and treatment Use motivational interviewing techniques MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING TECHNIQUES A collaborative conversation to strengthen a person s own motivation for and commitment to change.
