Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study is to examine the experiences of students in addiction recovery in college. Addiction impacts a vast number of Americans each year; according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, over one million adolescents received treatment for drug and alcohol addiction in 2011 alone (SAMHSA, 2011). By utilizing qualitative methods, specifically one on one interviews with college students in recovery, this study aims to understand the experiences of this population of students. Furthermore, the research looks at what addiction is and what factors might impact a student’s recovery process. The research explores how recovery intersects with the other aspects of a student’s life, how their environment might be a factor in that recovery, as well as their recovery capital. The research goes on to explore support systems and recovery centers as well as the stigmas and judgements students face on their college campuses.
