MINES FOR RECOVERY
Mines for Recovery has launched again for the Spring of 2023!
We meet Wednesdays at 7pm in the Student Center Earth Room (E136).
Our purpose is to provide a safe space for Mines students to meet and receive/offer peer support for drug and alcohol abuse.
Appropriate students to attend include those who:
i. Are in recovery.
ii. Have a drug/alcohol addiction.
iii. Are questioning if they have a drug/alcohol addiction.
iv. Have abused drugs or alcohol.
v. Desire to learn more to support a friend/peer/family member of concern.
This group is voluntary, anonymous, and led by students and Mines alumni. Please join us.
Recovery Resources While Isolated or Quarantined
Throughout the Coronavirus Pandemic, there has been quite a bit of understandable concern expressed by those in recovery about the impact of quarantines, stay-at-home orders, and general isolation on their recovery journeys. This was discussed on a Death, Sex & Money episode. We want all Mines students to be healthy, happy, and successful members of our community. Fortunately, hundreds of Alcoholic Anonymous meetings are taking place online (http://aa-intergroup.org/) and via phone (http://aaphonemeetings.org/). Additionally, live Narcotics Anonymous chat meetings are listed here.
An amazing organization based in Denver, The Phoenix, is conducing free virtual programming that includes daily crossfit, yoga, meditation, and more. Membership is free, with a suggested donation for those who are able. Schedule of classes here.
Mines for Recovery compiled a list of recovery support groups and treatment centers in the local Mines area. Please contact these groups directly to find out if they are meeting in-person or virtually. Download the Mines Drug and Alcohol Abuse Resource Guide.
Colorado Crisis Services is a wealth of information in the state of Colorado. Contact them with more immediate questions about current in-person treatment options.
There are many other online resources for those in recovery or those still struggling with addiction. Sober Nation provides resources to get sober and to stay sober. StartYourRecovery.org is another helpful resource website that includes a list of accredited treatment options in Denver, as well as support groups, local navigators, and hotlines.
