About the Program

Founded in 2018, The Center for Collegiate Recovery at Greenville Tech delivers student-driven Recovery Education and Access for Collegiate Health (REACH). GTC’s Center for Collegiate Recovery provides dedicated access to recovery support services, enhanced education space, and community engagement in a safe and intentional recovery environment. The CCR is a part of our Counseling and Recovery Services Dept., located in the Student Center of our Barton Campus in Greenville, South Carolina. Our staff include Certified Peer Support Specialists and Recovery Coaches, a Recovery Services Coordinator, and a Program Director. Combining recovery support, academic assistance, and recovery education, our Collegiate Recovery team is committed to empowering students’ awareness, wellness, stability, and educational advancement. We have a small but growing group of committed student members (10-15) and a student-led advocacy and community organization called GTC Students for Recovery. All Memberships with the Center for Collegiate Recovery at Greenville Tech are evaluated through a simple application process and a friendly staff/community interview. Anyone interested to attend the Open All Recovery Meeting on Fridays from 12-1pm is invited (no membership, no problem). We are proud to have established collaborative partnerships with our local nationally renowned Recovery Community Organization, FAVOR Greenville (Faces And Voices Of Recovery) and our community’s Mutual-aid fellowships and secular recovery pathways (AA, NA, SMART, Refuge, Celebrate, Wellbriety, etc.). We also enjoy strong relationships with private, state and county AOD\ Mental Health Service Agencies and our State’s largest healthcare provider and human services employer, PRISMA Health.
