About the Program

Gonzaga University’s Collegiate Recovery Community started forming in the Spring of 2013. OUR (Our Unique Recovery) House is the physical space provided on campus for students in recovery and those seeking sobriety. OUR House is one of the three functional areas of the Center for Cura Personalis (CCP), which falls under the Division of Student Development at Gonzaga. We have one Assistant Director for Wellness and Prevention Education in CCP, this position provides oversight for our small sized collegiate recovery community. Students lead two weekly recovery group meetings, and organize informal social gatherings and activities. Newcomers are invited to attend meetings and learn more about recovery. CCP staff members are also available to provide individual case management support to connect and refer students to other resources, both on and off-campus. Students in recovery who wish to room with another student in recovery may indicate so on their on-campus housing application.

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.
