Minneapolis Community and Technical College
About the Program
The Collegiate Recovery Community at Minneapolis Community and Technical College (MCTC) consists of a non-residential Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. MCTC’s Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) is a program within the Division of Student Affairs, founded in 2017. The CRP is committed to supporting all students in recovery from substance use disorders to finding academic and personal success.
The CRP is a collaborative effort between the University of Minnesota’s Boynton Health Clinic and MCTC’s Addiction Counseling academic program, Student Affairs and Student Life, and our 10-year old Addiction Counseling Club. The collaboration extends into the greater metro area with a number of programs and community resources. The program is coordinated by the Dean of Students and employees a ½ time Addiction Counseling professional and two ½ time student workers, and a number of individual personal recovery coaches.
A dedicated space was made available starting fall 2017 and is the CRP drop-in center. Students can access individual, group, and peer recovery support services. Programming currently consists of an annual national recovery event in September and regular All-Recovery meetings. Newcomers can participate in the CRP and make use of the drop-in center without being formally admitted to the CRP.
