Radford Recovery Community

Students should not have to choose between their education and their recovery. We are here to provide support so they do not have to. The office of Substance Abuse and Violence Education Support services (SAVES) houses the Collegiate Recovery Community at Radford University, as part of the Division of Student Affairs.

Our mission is to provide a safe, comfortable environment for students in recovery to strive academically, attend to their emotional and physical well-being with trained professionals, and connect socially with other students in recovery and allies to students in recovery.

We hold group-counseling sessions and SMART Recovery meetings through the SAVES office, which all are welcome to attend. More information on these groups can be found below.

We also have a recovery lounge in Heth Hall 243!

For more information about counseling, recovery events, or to talk to a student in recovery, please contact us by emailing saves@radford.edu or calling at 540-831-5709.

You can also follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep in touch!

Join us as we create a safe space and thriving community for students in recovery at Radford University.
