The Association of Recovery in Higher Education (ARHE) is a nonprofit association that represents approximately 130 colleges and universities with support programs for students in recovery, known as collegiate recovery programs (CRPs). With the addiction crisis affecting individuals far and wide, collegiate recovery programs are a critical solution for many communities. One day, we hope to see programs on every campus throughout the country. Our goal is to start by doubling the number of programs by the end of 2020. In order to do so, we’ll need your help!

#Our2020Vision Campaign is an engagement initiative to help move the collegiate recovery profession forward. Through awareness, action, and fundraising, our goal is to grow the Association so that we can best support the development and sustainability of the collegiate recovery field. We hope to accomplish that in the following ways:

  • Accrediting collegiate recovery programs nationwide
  • Offering collegiate recovery competency training to treatment centers and other organizations
  • Offering professional development opportunities for students in recovery
  • Training the collegiate recovery workforce
  • Assisting in the development of new collegiate recovery programs and ensuring their sustainability

Want to get involved? Here are the areas where we need help!

A collegiate recovery program (CRP) is a College or University-provided, supportive environment within the campus culture that reinforces the decision to engage in a lifestyle of recovery from substance use. It is designed to provide an educational opportunity alongside recovery support to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other.
