Longwood Recovers Featured in National Magazine
Dr. Kevin Doyle and Longwood Recovers were featured in the winter issue of Recovery Campus published by the Association of Recovery in Higher Education (ARHE). In 2013, Dr. Doyle was awarded a $10,000 grant from Transforming Youth Recovery and the collegiate recovery program, Longwood Recovers, was formed. The program is attractive to students contemplating recovery from substance abuse/addiction or other addictions and the gatherings are held every other Tuesday evening in an informal, non-judgmental way.
