DAVIDSON AND TOZER AWARDED EARLY STAGE RECOVERY GRANT
Eric Davidson and Mike Tozer (EIU Health Service) were recently awarded a $10,000 one-year Early Stage Recovery Grant from Transforming Youth Recovery. The grant will provide Eastern Illinois University with early-stage seed funding to engage in a capacity building approach aimed at building the relationships necessary to better meet the needs of students in substance recovery on campus. Through the grant, Eastern hopes to offer 12-step groups, social support, and networking opportunities for students in recovery. It is hoped that a recognized student organization for students in substance abuse recovery and their allies will be created by the end of the fall semester.
