Building Student Peer Recovery Communities: Sarah Nerad, OSU Collegiate Recovery Community


“Even after 5 years of recovery, I still needed and wanted support while in Graduate School. I felt like I didn’t fit in,” says Sarah.

Greg interviews Sarah Nerad, Program Manager for the Ohio State University Collegiate Recovery Community in Columbus, Ohio and the Director of Recovery for the Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Drug Misuse Prevention in Recovery. Sarah is in recovery herself, after struggling with addiction since the age of 15. She discusses her substance abuse disorder and how community aided her recovery. “I felt very limited and trapped…But I’m really grateful that my high school community in Houston, Texas had a really strong youth recovery community and continuum of care. I never stopped receiving services, and that’s what made it so successful for me,” says Sarah.
