“I care about supporting people in recovery because I know a more fulfilling life is possible for those of us who struggle with addictive and destructive behaviors. Everyone deserves a dynamic, fun, and supportive community at UofSC; being part of Gamecock Recovery lets me build that experience along with students pursuing recovery.”
