Hurricane Ida Update: All Campus Health services including the Health Center for Student Care, Counseling Center, and Pharmacy are currently closed for in person appointments due to Hurricane Ida until 9/27. Campus Health will reopen for telehealth appointments on 9/21. For medical needs, the Nurse Advice Line is active and can help you make decisions about whether to make an appointment with an outside health care provider, how to take self-care measures, how to renew prescriptions or answer medication questions, and much more. Call 504-862-8121, leave a message, and a nurse will return your call. For mental health support and crisis support, The Line is available 24/7 to Tulane students. Call The Line at (504) 264-6074. We are not able to retrieve medications left behind on campus or to ship medications from the Student Health Center at this time.

Tulane Recovery Community

The Tulane Recovery Community’s mission is to support individualized recovery on campus by providing recovery-based programs that foster academic achievement, connection and engagement.

Tulane University is committed to supporting students who are in recovery from substance use disorders and/or who identify as having a problematic relationship with alcohol and/or other substances.

We recognize recovery is an all-inclusive term and is individualized for each person. For the purposes of the TRC, recovery refers to a voluntary commitment and desire to abstain from alcohol and other problematic substances.

Our community supports students in developing and sustaining a foundation for long-term recovery by providing a safe non-judgmental environment to discuss collegiate specific topics and ideas supportive of recovery on campus.

Who is welcome to participate in the TRC?

In addition to individuals who self-identify as a person in recovery, the Tulane Recovery Community welcomes anyone who is interested in what a recovery lifestyle has to offer, including those who are “recovery curious” and are questioning their relationship with alcohol and or other substances. Additionally, we recognize the need for advocacy and support, and we provide education and space for those identifying as "recovery allies."

Program features

  • Community connection by promoting social and peer support
  • Navigating barriers to a successful academic progression
  • Normalizing recovery identity on campus
  • Education, resources, and training to students, families, faculty, and staff
  • Sober social activities on and off campus
  • Recovery support meetings
  • Connection to campus support services

The TRC is not a clinical treatment program or a 12-step based program; we are a recovery community based on social support models. We do invite students to actively engage in maintaining their personal recovery by regularly attended support meetings and attending programming provided by the TRC.

How to get involved

Interested in getting involved with the TRC? Feel free to join one of our weekly meetings.
