All month long, we’ve been discussing the real risk of substance abuse and addiction among college students. We’ve discussed how to help college students, the importance of college students seeking treatment, and the temptations which live on college campuses. Here, we will discuss the threat of relapse when coming back to campus and how we can help students stay accountable.


Returning To School

Depending on where in their college career a student leaves school, they may have had friends for quite a few years. One of the most difficult parts of making the decision to leave school via medical leave and seek treatment is the reality of missing out on graduating with close friends. However, returning to school means making new friends, new memories, and focusing on what is most important: education. Still, college is full of social pressures which can be triggering for a college student fresh in their recovery.

Working with Hired Power, students and their families are completely prepared for the return to school. Our services help make the transition from treatment to school as seamless as possible by coordinating transportation, all necessary arrangements with school, and creating a plan with the family. When a student is returning to school, they are completely equipped with every tool they need to navigate challenges, overcome obstacles, and find success in school, recovery, and beyond.


How Hired Power Helps Returning To School

Relapse is the greatest concern for parents of college students in recovery who are returning to school. College is notorious for being the “party” years, full of binge drinking, substance abuse, and drug experimentation. Recovery helps many college students feel more confident in themselves in such a way that they are not inspired to compromise their newfound values of sobriety. Addiction, on the other hand, can be extremely convincing, and college students are prone to relapsing after returning to school.


Monitoring Services

Students can work with their onsite clinic or trusted laboratories nearby to submit regular urinary analysis labs or other blood tests. A Case Manager at Hired Power might ask students to check-in via email, text, video chat, or phone call on a regular basis for accountability.


Personal Recovery Assistant

Hired Power assigns each student with the perfect accompaniment in a Personal Recovery Assistant. Blending in on campus or off-campus, a Recovery Assistant can help students navigate challenging social circumstances, prioritize scheduling, manage all the demands of an academic lifestyle, go to recovery support meetings, support accountability, and more.
