Recovery: A process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.


Students who want to live a sober lifestyle tend to isolate and have a difficult time connecting with other students.  NRAP was developed to provide a safe and fun community where students can meet others and not feel alone. Through our on-campus center students can drop in between classes, study, attend meetings, play video games, and most of all, make new friends.


Recovering and sober living students challenge today’s perceived norms of substance use on college campuses. To support them NRAP houses recovery and wellness meetings, provides opportunities to give back to others and their community, focuses on academic success, and allows students to grow in their mind, body, and spirit.


Students living a substance free lifestyle have the opportunity to celebrate each day and not have the past define their future. NRAP focuses on overall wellness with a goal of supporting students to find acceptance, happiness, fun, peace, success, and commitment to a healthy life. Connecting with others and growing individually allows our students to thrive during their college experience!
