Students launch campus-based Narcotics Anonymous group
SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - Graduate students in Slippery Rock University's addiction counseling program have launched a 12-step Narcotics Anonymous support group. "It's a Brand New Day" provides free and confidential group meetings to those struggling with addiction.
"The meetings are open to SRU students, staff, faculty and community members who are in recovery, those who wish to attend to support a roommate, friend, significant other and those who wish to find out more about the 12-step program," said Gerard Love, SRU associate professor of counseling and development. "The only requirement to attend is a desire to be drug and alcohol free. This is a pro-active move for the campus community."
The group meetings are 9-10:30 p.m. Thursday at SRU's Counseling and Development Building, 113 East Cooper St. Call 724.813.2987 for more information.
