About the Program
C.A.R.E. (Caring Advocates for Recovery education) Center Recovery Program
The C.A.R.E. Center was opened in 2015 on campus at Lorain County Community College in Elyria, Ohio. We are located within the Advocacy Resource Center (ARC) and have a dedicated space in the business building. Currently we have one full-time Coordinator, and PhD Intern, and 3 student workers. We also have certified Peer Support workers who are available to work one-on-one with the students who come in to the center. Our program is considered large and growing. We are well-supported by the college and campus community. We are also supported by the community and have many in the community that we collaborate with on a regular basis. We are partnered with the LCADA Way, The Mental Health, Addiction and Recovery Resources (MHARS) Board, The Nord Family Foundation, and Let’s Get Real. We currently have 5 AA meetings each week, an Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACA), an Al-Anon meeting and a Solace (Surviving Our loss and Continuing Everyday) meeting. We also house the students in recovery (CARE) club. The goal of the CARE Club is to have at least one sober event each semester and invite the whole campus to participate to show students that they can enjoy the college experience and still remain sober. Newcomers are always welcome!

COLLEGIATE RECOVERY PROGRAM
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.
