Renton Technical College
About the Program
The Collegiate Recovery Program was founded at Renton Technical College in 2022. We are located within the Department of Workforce Education and Grants, and are co-operated with the Supporting Students Experiencing Homelessness grant in order to ensure the greatest resources and services for students. The program operates out of the Wellbriety Center. We have one Case Manager and one student peer ambassador. Our program is considered small but growing, and is well-supported by the campus. The Collegiate Recovery Program hosts weekly recovery support group meetings for students during the academic year, offers a variety of substance-free/sober activities throughout the year, offers scholarships to students in recovery, and has a growing recovery resource library. We are currently developing a student organization. We utilize a harm-reduction approach to recovery; students who are exploring recovery, in active recovery, or who have been impacted by substance use by close friends/family are welcome. There are no other requirements for membership: newcomers are welcome!
