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.

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.

The ARHE Website is currently undergoing updates. While we anticipate minimal disruption, please email mack@collegiaterecovery.org if you experience any issues with the website and we apologize for any inconvenience.
