Since the Ranch at Dove Tree opened its doors in 2002, the program has helped many individuals start down the road to recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs. Since September 2006, the Ranch at Dove Tree has collaborated with the Center for the Study of Addiction and Recovery and offered generous support.
The Association of Recovery in Higher Education (ARHE) serves as a foundation and network for Collegiate Recovery Programs from across the nation and is committed to providing support for collegiate students in recovery from addictive disorders. ARHE seeks to improve the lives of recovery students by utilizing various models of support which incorporates the facilitation of peer, administrative and academic assistance.
The John P. McGovern Foundation contributed a major gift to fund the creation of the National Recovery Student Database project. This gift has allowed the Center for the Study of Addiction and Recovery to be the national research resource for data on recovery students and collegiate recovery communities.
The generosity of Barbara and Mickey McKenzie has allowed the continuation of the replication project at the Center for the Study of Addiction and Recovery. This gift allowed the continued development of a program model of the Collegiate Recovery Community that has been replicated at other universities and will continue to be replicated in the future. Their generosity has allowed us to distill this information through two national conferences.
