"RCA is excited to offer the Recovery Centers of America College Scholarship for the second year in a row. We were thrilled with the response we received last year and it really demonstrates the tremendous interest of today’s students in pursuing careers helping those with substance use disorders," said Recovery Centers of America Director of Public Relations Terri C.
