There is so much focus on mitigating the dangers of the college experience that many institutions may leave accommodations for those in recovery from mental health conditions and/or substance use challenges out of the picture. A small few colleges provide robust collegiate recovery programs where students in recovery can find the safety of a compassionate and supportive community. Many campuses, however, have no such program and not enough therapeutic resources to serve the growing population of those in need of support. Those in recovery have largely been left out and even shunned as their needs run counter to the dominant narrative of the college world… “We don’t have that problem here.”
LifeTutors works in collaboration with local colleges and educational institutions to provide the resources and community connection needed to help change the trajectory of recovering students’ lives. We are a clinically advised coaching program capable of assessing, advising, advocating, and supporting those in recovery who seek to excel in higher education.
If your student is entering the collegiate world for the first time after navigating emotional and/or behavioral challenges or returning to campus after a disappointing first attempt, we can help. Our team of coaches walk hand in hand with your student to class, to study hall, back to the apartment, or wherever the support is needed helping facilitate the greatest likelihood of success. We are equipped with study areas, computers, assessment tools, and a team of masters trained educators and advisors to give your student the boost they need.
