CU Anschutz Recovery Community Interest Meeting
CU Anschutz Students! Please join us for an interest meeting to discuss an exciting new Campus Recovery Community (CRC). The main purpose of a CRC is to foster a supportive environment that reinforces and celebrates the decision to engage in a healthy lifestyle through recovery from addictions. A CRC offers an opportunity for students to connect with like-minded peers with shared experiences who support one another through recovery in a compassionate and judgment-free space. If you believe our campus would benefit from a supportive recovery community, we’d like to hear from you!
Date: Monday, Oct 7th, 2019
Time: 5pm
Building: Education 2 North
Room: Oasis, room 2101

Food and refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP by emailing Matthew.3.Jones@cuanschutz.edu.
