Ferris State University
About the Program
Working in partnership with Ferris State University, Ten16 has established a CREW – Collegiate Recovery, Education & Wellness program on campus. This innovative initiative developed in 2016 offers a comprehensive response to the issues of alcohol and other drugs on a campus and to students living in the surrounding community. It integrates a collection of prevention, early intervention, and peer support activities; making them available to all students affected by substance use, regardless of whether they have a mild, moderate or severe substance use disorder, in early or established recovery. Newcomers are welcome to participate in events and programs and encouraged to explore recovery with us. CREW offers a range of drop-in services to anyone with questions, struggles or in need of a safe environment to strengthen their recovery and maintain their academic performance. We currently have an office and dedicated student lounge space within the Birkham Health Center. Our staff consists of a Program Supervisor and Site Coordinator. Our program is still growing, and would still be considered a small collegiate recovery community.
