About the Collegiate Recovery Program: Students who are actively involved in recovery from alcohol or other drug addiction can join our program to help nurture their sobriety and excel in college. We also offer ourselves as a resource for people seeking information about recovery and what steps to take in order to stop hurting and start healing.
Our mission is to provide a supportive community where students in recovery can achieve academic success while enjoying a genuine college experience, free from alcohol and other drugs.
The Collegiate Recovery Program provides:
- A supportive community within the campus culture that reinforces the decision to disengage from addictive behaviors
- Educational opportunities alongside recovery support to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other
- Accountability for students in recovery that comes from self, peers, and higher education staff
- A normative college experience for students in recovery apart from the culture of drinking/use that is present on today's campuses
