As part of The University of Maryland’s commitment to advance collegiate substance use education, intervention and programs and to eliminate stigma associated with addiction, the University partnered with The Haven at College as part of our multifaceted approach to students in, or in need of, recovery. The Haven’s services will supplement the University’s broad range of services, including the Substance Use, Intervention and Treatment (SUIT) program and the student Terps for Recovery organization, to provide a continuum of care to support students struggling with mental health and substance use issues and those in recovery.
The Haven at College Recovery Residence is a unique peer-led, clinically supervised “sober living” residential community for students in abstinence based-recovery. Students help each other navigate early sobriety, identifying with each other’s challenges and sharing successes -- while succeeding in college.
The Haven at College Outpatient Center across the street from campus on Baltimore Avenue, provides students with evidence-based Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient treatment programs to help them address substance use and mental health issues in a safe and relatable space while staying academically engaged at The University of Maryland. The treatment programs are covered by CareFirst student health insurance and most other PPO insurance and are conveniently scheduled around students’ busy student academic schedules. The Haven’s Outpatient Center also includes a drop in space for studying, meeting friends and hanging out in a safe and judgement-free environment. All are welcome to the weekly student-led recovery meetings, social events and mindfulness activities that are hosted here each week.
