About Collegiate Recovery

What is a Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP)?

A collegiate recovery program is a college- or university-provided supportive environment within the campus culture that reinforces the decision to engage in a lifestyle of recovery from addiction. It is designed to provide an educational opportunity alongside recovery support to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other.

To meet the needs of this growing population of recovering young adults as they pursue their educations, several colleges and universities have developed collegiate recovery communities to help young adults in recovery maintain their abstinence while pursuing their educations.
