Institutional Membership

Institutional Membership with ARHE is purchased by eligible institutions and  comes with one complimentary CRP Professional Affiliate delegate Membership. The recipient of the complimentary membership is left to the discretion of the institution, though it is often given to the staff or faculty member who is most directly involved with the institution’s Collegiate Recovery Program, and is transferable within the institution, the complimentary Professional Affiliate delegate is the member who will receive the benefit of membership. Institutional Membership also provides all faculty and staff at the institution with the ability to apply for individual Professional Affiliate Memberships at a discounted rate ($75 as opposed to the standard $125).

Having an Institutional membership allows faculty and staff within the member institution an opportunity to purchase additional CRP Professional memberships at a discounted rate of $75 which come with the same benefits and perks as the Institutional CRP Professional delegate.  Member institutions can purchase as many CRP Professional Affiliate memberships as they want, as long as the Institution is in good standings.

To qualify for Institutional Membership, the institution must house a developing or established qualified Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP). Qualified CRPs are housed within Institutions of Higher Education that confer academic degrees (e.g., associates, bachelors, masters, and/or doctorate degrees). CRPs are non-profit entities. CRPs have paid qualified, trained, ethical, and dedicated professionals who support students in recovery. CRPs have within them a collegiate recovery community with students in recovery from their alcoholism and/or drug addiction as the primary focus. CRPs do best with a dedicated physical space for students in recovery to gather and offer peer support to one another. CRPs provide a variety of recovery support services to assist students in maintaining and protecting their recovery. 

Individual Membership

Individual Membership options are also available for those who do not belong to a member institution but are still interested in becoming an ARHE Member. There are two types of Individual Membership: the Ally Membership and the Student Membership. The Ally Membership is available to individuals who are interested in issues of recovery and education but who are not affiliated with a specific CRP  . This membership is appropriate for educational administrators and teachers/professors; researchers (affiliated with educational institutions or not); credentialed therapists and addiction professionals (affiliated with educational institutions or not); government representatives; parents; and individuals in recovery, etc. Emeritus members of schools or colleges are also eligible for Ally Membership. 

Individual Student Memberships are also available for at a discounted rate of $30. These memberships are available to any student, undergraduate or graduate, who is in recovery and interested in being an ally to students in recovery and the recovery movement. Students need not be enrolled at an ARHE Member Institution to enroll in this membership option.

A Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) is a college or university-provided program that includes a supportive environment within the campus culture. CRPs reinforce the decision to engage in a lifestyle of recovery from addiction/substance use disorder. It is designed to provide an educational opportunity alongside recovery supports to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other.
