About the Program

Florida State university’s Collegiate Recovery Community was created in the Fall of 2019. While under the Division of Student Affairs, we are specifically within the Center for Health Advocacy & Wellness, located at University Health Services. While we are currently seeking to obtain dedicated space, the Community utilizes rooms at the health center for meetings and events. At this moment, the Community has the AOD Prevention Coordinator (as acting director) and one graduate assistant as a part-time Assistant Coordinator. Though our Community is small and in its early stages, we have the support of key departments in the University. We offer meetings and study sessions (offered bimonthly) and a monthly abstinence-friendly programming. We also partner with outside groups that offer both traditional and non-traditional support. Though we are currently developing criteria for full membership, students interested in recovery can participate in events and programs and are encouraged to live sober lifestyles.

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.
