Cougars in Recovery, the only collegiate recovery program in Houston, bridges the gap between recovery and higher education for students in recovery from substance use disorders.
The mission for Cougars in Recovery is to offer students a smooth transition to the University, both socially and academically by providing a safe, sober environment that assists and supports them as they pursue their academic and professional goals, walk the path of recovery and participate in the diverse social opportunities available on campus.
The focus is on recovery and overall wellness, providing holistic support to create a healthy balance between recovery, academics and life.
The goal is to create an atmosphere where all students may attain success, accountability, and a sense of community as they navigate their way through higher education striving to maintain their sobriety and live life fully in recovery.
Cougars in Recovery, the collegiate recovery community at the University of Houston, is raising funds for "Reaching Our Highest Heights in Recovery!". This project will allow college students in recovery from substance use disorders to participate in the life changing experience of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in an environment that fully supports their recovery. This experience will offer the opportunity for students to develop as individuals while striving to achieve their personal goals and accomplish their lifelong dreams.
Just picture this group of students holding a University of Houston, Cougars in Recovery banner at the top of the highest peak in Africa!
Upon completion of the climb, students will spend a few days working with Hard Life Artists. This club provides art and craft lessons to underprivileged kids in Rau Moshi, Tanzania. They provide a safe place for children to create art and listen to music while surrounded by a community of young people looking to support one another. Artwork is sold to support the community.
