More students can access recovery support thanks to two new partnerships


According to research, approximately 4% of the student population meets the criteria for substance use disorder or are in recovery at any given time. That means in Michigan, more than 20,000 students would benefit from collegiate recovery support – so they can achieve an education in an otherwise slippery environment. That’s why the Jamie Daniels Foundation continues its support of these programs; not only are they needed, but they work.

With access to resources, support, and guidance throughout their recovery journey, up to 95% of students who take an active part in leading or participating in a collegiate recovery go on to maintain their recovery. The Jamie Daniels Foundation is pleased to add two more schools to its list of collegiate recovery program partnerships, granting a combined total of more than $85,000 to the following schools:

Olivet College: Support will increase access to counseling and therapeutic services, sponsor educational programming, as well as sobriety events and programming.

Wayne State University: Support will help establish a collegiate recovery program, hiring staff and execution of a needs assessment to curate a program unique to the culture and student needs at the university.

These schools join University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Central Michigan University, Oakland University, Ferris State University, Mid-Michigan College, and Washtenaw Community College on the roster of Michigan universities and colleges that receive grant funding from Jamie Daniels Foundation for collegiate recovery programming. Grants are funded in partnership with The Children’s Foundation.

“We’re proud to be able to grow our support of students struggling with substance use disorder or are in recovery in order for them to manage their disease and ultimately lead their best lives,” said Lisa Daniels Goldman, co-founder of the Jamie Daniels Foundation.
