Areas of Focus
TYR’s higher education initiative focuses on the creation of on-campus collegiate recovery programs to directly support students in recovery from substance use disorders. To date, we have issued grants to over 120 sites to start recovery programs. We are expanding this initiative by issuing additional grants to four year colleges and launching a community college program to give more students access to recovery support. The intent of this initiative is to ensure that no individual will have to choose between maintaining their recovery or obtaining higher education.
