Recovery Services at The College of St. Scholastica is a community based, peer driven recovery support program. While certain elements are specific to St. Scholastica students, others are available without requirement. Regardless of scholastic affiliation, individuals are invited to participate with Recovery Services at a commitment level appropriate for them.
CLEAN Connect is an informal community of individuals who are invited to attend programming facilitated by Recovery Services. The community is connected through text messaging and social media. Registering with CLEAN Connect is not a formal commitment and simply allows Recovery Services to include you in their announcements. Students from campuses across the Twin Ports are invited to join the network. Involvement is not limited to college students and all are welcome to register.
The CLEAN Program. The CLEAN Program is a leadership development program for St. Scholastica students in recovery. Students work with a Recovery Coach to learn skills and develop confidence which enhances their peer-to-peer interaction and support their overall volunteer effectiveness. The CLEAN Program is service centered and is the hub of our peer-to-peer recovery support model. Participation in the CLEAN Program requires students to sign an agreement which outlines the expectations and responsibilities of involvement. There are three parts to the CLEAN Program: CLEAN Reside (sober housing), CLEAN Connect (collegiate recovery network), and CLEAN Equip (work with a Recovery Coach to enhance recovery and develop a recovery lifestyle of leadership and personal responsibility). CLEAN Connect is open to all, regardless of level of involvement with CLEAN; CLEAN Reside is available to conventional CLEAN participants only, requiring them to have signed an agreement and be fully active; CLEAN Equip is offered to conventional CLEAN participants only, but residence in CLEAN Reside is not required to utilize this resource.
Sober Living Community. The Sober Living Community- or CLEAN Reside- allows students of St. Scholastica and surrounding colleges to collectively engage in living out the principles of recovery. Residents are expected to be fully committed to 12-step recovery, service work, and fostering relationships with their roommates. The sober living community is located on-campus within a traditional student apartment building with one floor exclusively for sober living.
These individual communities are all interrelated. They build on and serve each other. Residents within CLEAN Reside are expected to fully participate in both The CLEAN Program and CRN events. As with sober living; expectations of The CLEAN Program include CRN participation.
