Seahawks in Recovery
There are many resources at UNCW for students in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction, gambling addiction, and those affected by other people's addiction.
CROSSROADS can refer you to campus and community resources, help you plan for your transition into UNCW, connect you to other students in recovery to build your network of support. CROSSROADS can also guide you in dealing with the institutional policies of UNCW, such as on-campus living, your academic affairs contacts, or financial issues .Call our office at 910.962.4136 or stop by either of our offices in DePaolo Hall #2105 or Student Recreation Center #104.

The Hundley Health Education Center in the Student Recreation Center (Room 104) is open Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5-9 p.m. as a space for CRC members to hang out, study, and get to know one another. Every Tuesday, we host a weekly dinner for CRC members at 6:30 p.m.
There are 12 step meetings every day in Wilmington; many are within walking distance of campus. This fall, our Al-Anon group meets on Wednesdays and a new Alcoholics Anonymous group meets on Tuesdays. If you would like to start an on campus meeting, please contact CROSSROADS at (910) 962-4136.
Worried about relapse? Here are some warning signs.
Governor Pat McCrory declared Thursday, September 5th as Collegiate Recovery Community Day in the state of North Carolina. Members of UNCW’s CRC participated in the signing, along with groups from UNC Charlotte, UNC Chapel Hill, and Duke University.
UNCW CROSSROADS has received a grant from the Stacie Matthewson Foundation to support development of a Collegiate Recovery Community, known on campus as CRC Hawks.

Yes, there is such thing as happy hour in sobriety! A great way to connect with other students in a friendly, social, sober environment. There's free food and games every week and different sponsors bring t-shirts, prizes, and more!
The Meeting Before The Meeting
Thursdays at 7pm and Fridays at 6pm, SRC 104
Going to 12 step meetings in a new area can be a little intimidating, especially if you have not previously attended. Whether you’re looking for a new home group or just wanting to check things out, meet with a student in recovery to talk for a little bit and then head to a local 12 step meeting. The student will answer any questions you have to the best of their ability as well as attend the meeting with you so you won’t have to go alone. For more information, contact us or stop by either CROSSROADS office.
Seahawk Strength & Hope
Tuesdays 3/18 and 4/15, 4 pm, Clocktower Lounge, FSC
Whether you or someone close to you is in recovery, or you know somebody that might have a problem with drugs and/or alcohol, addiction affects many people’s lives. Come learn more about addiction and show why you support recovery from drug and alcohol dependence. There will be speakers, information, students in recovery to answer questions, and snacks! Stop by after class to get a little something to eat and show your support for recovery!
