The Recovering Person's Prevention Project (R3P): Involving Recovering Students and Community Members in Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Prevention on the College Campus.
Rapaport, Ross J.; And Others
Experience has shown repeatedly that many members of the "recovering community" are very interested and committed to helping to prevent others from developing alcohol or other drug problems or in helping those who currently have these problems. However, it is often not evident how members of the "recovering community" can be most helpful on campus and work cooperatively with others interested in reducing alcohol and other drug problems. A program "Recovering Person's Prevention Project" (R3P) which involves recovering students, faculty, staff, administrators, and community members in campus alcohol and other drug programming is described. The R3P provides an opportunity for recovering chemically dependent individuals to support each other and to share their experiences with interested groups and individuals on and off campus. Members: (1) meet at least twice monthly for projects, brainstorming ideas, coordinating programs, and providing support; (2) serve as liaisons to and provide support to the 12-step groups on campus and in the community; (3) coordinate R3P activities with other campus and community alcohol and other drug programs; (4) convene the Alcohol Education Discipline Program groups to serve students; (5) provide panel presentations to campus and community groups; (6) provide some staffing for the Alcohol and Other Drug Education Program at the campus Wellness Resource Center; and (7) provide activities for Alcohol Awareness Month, including participating in the homecoming parade and an awareness day. (Program highlights from the 1990-92 academic years are listed.) (ABL)
