About the Program

Skagit Valley College’s (SVC) collegiate recovery program is currently located within the Student Services division. Cardinals for Recovery began in December 2021. We currently meet weekly on Zoom, however, when in person, we meet in Human Services. The recovery program at SVC is a hybrid program that links the recovery meeting with the reentry student club serving formerly incarcerated students. We are in process of hiring a handful of paid positions to provide peer recovery support for students in recovery. Two full time staff support the development and maintenance of the program. Our recovery group is small at this time and growing. We are in process of awarding scholarships to students involved in recovery on campus to support their persistence in college. There are no requirements to membership and all student clubs/organizations are open to all students. We allow anyone who is interested in or currently engaged in a program of recovery.

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.
