Collegiate Recovery Scholarship Breakfast

The Center for Young Adult Addiction in Recovery at Kennesaw State University witnesses the transformation that occurs when individuals in recovery pursue education. This not only reduces societal costs but reignites their hopes and dreams while healing relationships. Like other KSU graduates, these students in recovery become valued professionals. We invite you to invest in recovery, whether it's through financial support, time, mentorship, or second chances. Our center offers a comprehensive range of services, including prevention, intervention, ongoing clinical support, and recovery support services.

Join us at this year's Collegiate Recovery Scholarship Breakfast to witness the returns on this investment!
