About the Program

Established Fall 2015, ECU Recovery is designed to provide educational opportunities, personal development, and social enhancement to students in recovery from mind-altering substances and to the allies that support their journey to a better self. ECU Recovery students, and allies, have access to a dedicated team of professional staff and peer educators, including full-time, licensed counselors and social workers and a program coordinator. Described as a small collegiate recovery community, we support students all along the spectrum of recovery. Our program does extensive outreach to the broader campus community through our fun, yet educational, programming and social events. Our most popular programming includes sober tailgates, recovery messaging trainings, and Sail Sober events. ECU Recovery is housed within the ECU Center for Counseling and Student Development, located on Main Campus.

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.
