About the Program

The Sacred Heart Collegiate Recovery Program was established in the Spring of 2019 and will begin operation in the Fall of 2019. Our Collegiate Recovery Program is located in our main academic building which allows us to show our full campus support of a program that is about abstinence-based recovery. We offer a safe-space lounge facility, 12-step meetings on campus, a recovery staff, as well as much more. Our program can currently be described as small, however, we plan on increasing in size as we continue to build. Future plans include having a sober living space for students who wish to live on campus with other students in recovery (anticipated by the 2020-21 Academic year.) In order to be a part of our program students need to have a desire to stop using drugs or alcohol. We welcome all Sacred Heart students to become involved in our program if they wish to try an abstinence-based lifestyle.

A collegiate recovery program (CRP) is a College or University-provided, supportive environment within the campus culture that reinforces the decision to engage in a lifestyle of recovery from substance use. It is designed to provide an educational opportunity alongside recovery support to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other.
