College can be a challenge for young people in recovery from substance abuse. It’s not just the stress of papers and tests—it’s living with people who use drugs and alcohol, where a relapse can be as easy as a stroll down the dorm hallway.
UNC offers alternative living options for these at-risk students. More than just a change in scenery, they aim to provide a sense of safety and community for the students who use them.

Jay, I had no idea that such facilities were available at the College. I am so impressed and thankful that students have this opportunity to live in a protected area and have people that share their experience and can be an encouragement to one another. Great reporting on thIs Jay! I’m proud of you!!
