About the Program

The Stanford University Collegiate Recovery Program, Cardinal Recovery, offers weekly recovery meetings, housing accommodations, sober social programming, and staff support through the Office of Substance Use Programs, Education & Resources (SUPER). Cardinal Recovery was borne out of formal recommendations in 2019 from both the Policy Practicum: Assessing Alcohol Use Among Stanford Undergraduates (LAW 806L) class and the Stanford Alcohol Solutions Group. It featured student-led recovery meetings (started January 2020), and an advisory board of students, staff, faculty, and alumni. In Fall 2021, the program had its first dedicated half-time professional staff member, a student worker, and has a close partnership with the substance-free and wellness themed undergraduate residence on campus. The collegiate recovery program (Cardinal Recovery) is open to any Stanford affiliate in any form of recovery, with services dedicated to students in recovery from substance use addictions and diagnoses.

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.
