About the Program
Temple University’s Collegiate Recovery Program is located in Philadelphia, PA. We are housed under the Wellness Resource Center within the Division of Student Affairs. We currently hold weekly social events within the Wellness Resource Center and the Howard Gittis Student Center. The WRC organizes spaces for students in recovery from substance use disorder(s) and allies. These spaces offer educational programs and opportunities to connect with peers. Our team consists of six full time individuals and several student staff, with the Alcohol & Other Drug Prevention Coordinator and Collegiate Recovery Community Graduate Exterserving as primary leads on all recovery-focused initiatives. Our program is in its stages and is gaining support across campus with a new affinity group created with support from our office of Student Activities. All are welcome, however, these groups are not facilitated by clinicians or intended to be a substitute for treatment.
