Substance Use Disorder, Collegiate Recovery, and Student Accommodations

Description

For the 2.2% of all students identifying as in recovery from substance use disorder, an often overlooked and misunderstood resource for them is their on-campus disability services and accommodation staff. This lack of clarity regarding accommodations for students in recovery often also exists for the disability resource professionals serving them. In addition to knowledge gaps, stigma related to substance use disorder is often one of the greatest barriers for individuals seeking support. Understanding our responsibility to support this growing population and what accommodations may be most appropriate is the first move in ensuring these students have an equal educational opportunity. In this webinar, information regarding the complex relationship between substance use disorder and federal disability protections will be shared and recommendations for creating more recovery-supportive policies and procedures will be suggested.
