About the Program

The Dalton State Collegiate Recovery Community, founded in 2013, is a small CRP and has a meeting space open to members of the CRC for computer/printer use and to hangout, relax, do homework, and attend participate in groups. Structurally we are affiliated with the Counseling Center, which is part of the Health and Wellness department. We do not have dedicated housing, but can work with Residence life to match folks with sober roommates. Staff support is provided by one FT person, but is not purely dedicated to the CRC. Additional support has been provided by student and masters’ level intern positions. Our activities include weekly CRC meetings, SMART recovery, and 12-step meetings. Activities with the local recovery community include an annual Chili Cook-off, and presentations about collegiate recovery. Each semester we have group outings and do on-campus recovery awareness events. The main requirements for membership are being actively involved in recovery, and having evidence of commitment to sobriety. Students wanting to become part of the CRC fill out an application and provide letters of recommendation. During the application process, newcomers can participate in recovery meetings and attend CRC meetings. Benefits such as priority registration is open only to fully accepted members of the CRC.
