One University Takes On the Opioid Crisis

By Beth McMurtrie October 01, 2017 Premium

Morgantown, W.Va.

Andrew Caryl is helping to change that. A master’s-degree student in rehabilitation and counseling, he battled his own addictions to pills, alcohol, and methamphetamine for years. Now clean, he wants to help others. He spoke to the first class in the new minor this fall. And he works at Serenity Place, home of the university’s Collegiate Recovery Program for students who have struggled with addiction. He plans to become a licensed counselor on substance abuse.

"I feel compelled to be part of the solution," says Mr. Caryl, whose hometown, Martinsburg, has been overrun by the heroin trade. As he sees it, the university must also play a role. "It makes sense that one of the biggest employers would need to step up and be part of the effort to deal with this," he says. "Because it’s eating up the state."
