About the Program

The Collegiate Recovery Program at Mitchell College is new for 2017, and is a collaborative project between the departments of Academic Affairs and Student Affairs and encompassing all college areas including Health and Wellness, Campus Life and Academic Advising. The program is led by Caroline Vasquez, a full time Academic Advisor who has a background in mental health counseling and experience in working with students in recovery. As a recognized national leader for its innovative support programs, Mitchell College is committed to developing the strengths of each and every student. We are proud to extend this same support to students who are overcoming struggles with drugs or alcohol, and students who choose to live and learn substance-free. The Mitchell College Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP), is a small program that offers students in recovery from substance abuse a safe and supportive environment to begin or continue their education. Students in the Mitchell College Collegiate Recovery Program have the opportunity to live in a small substance-free residence hall that houses up to 20 students and maintains a close community environment. Students in this residence hall plan and attend sober social events and outings, participate in student support groups, and have the opportunity to network with recovery supports within the local community. Commuter students are also welcome to join in these activities.
