The Lighthouse Program
The Wellness Center’s Lighthouse Program was started through a grant from the New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS). The goal of the grant is to create a supportive environment within the campus culture that reinforces the decision to engage in a lifestyle and provide an educational opportunity alongside recovery support to ensure student success.
Lighthouse Program mission statement: Our inclusive community prioritizes creating a safe and welcoming environment for students in or exploring recovery to build a healthy and sustainable lifestyles using intentional resources, support, service, events and companionship.
While the Lighthouse Program is currently closed due to COVID-19, the Wellness Center staff has identified some online and virtual resources for support and recovery meetings.
