About the Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP):
CRP provides holistic, tailored support to Michigan students who are in recovery from alcohol or other drug problems.If you are a student in recovery or are curious about recovery, give us a call.
CRP is not a clinical treatment program; rather it is a recovery support service. CRP staff do not provide clinical treatment or therapy. Students who need treatment may be referred elsewhere prior to admittance to CRP. See the list of local treatment providers below or give us a call with questions.
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.

Connections with other recovering students
Involvement in fun, sober events (on and off-campus)
Recovery support and accountability through case management, including weekly check-in, support for transitions into campus, etc.
Opportunities to be of service
Connections to resources for academic wellness and support
Access to the lounge, a safe, supportive space where you can relax and recharge
Opportunities to debunk stereotypes and myths about addiction and recovery
I can honestly say CRP has saved my life. Before getting involved with CRP, I did not know that I could have a sober college experience. All my previous social circles revolved around using, and I did not know how to live otherwise. CRP gave me a supportive community of students just like me, which was exactly what I needed to get sober and stay sober. -M.P. 2013
With the help of the staff and groups here at Michigan such as the Collegiate Recovery Program and Students for Recovery, I have become the student I could not have been when alcohol and drugs were dominating my life. -A.B. 2013
Ann Arbor is an amazing place to be in recovery. The local recovering community is abundant with young people. There are over ten 12-step meetings a day near the University of Michigan campus. Sober recreational opportunities are plentiful. If you are new to Ann Arbor, or new to recovery, CRP can help you connect with local recovery resources.
Students for Recovery is a voluntary student organization that is sponsored by UHS. Students meet regularly to socialize as well as to plan and participate in service projects in the local community. If you are in recovery, thinking about recovery, or supportive of recovery, you are welcome to attend our meetings. For more information, see our Facebook page or Contact Us.
