About the Program

Health Promotion’s Recovery Services is located within Offices of the Dean of Student Life in the Division of Student Affairs. We are in the process of expanding support services for our students in recovery and 25% of full-time employee status is dedicated to this effort. Health Promotion houses the Aggie Recovery Community (ARC) – a student organization that provides a safe, sober, and supportive environment for college students struggling with or recovering from addiction. The ARC has 10 active members and provides 12-step style meetings, study sessions, socials, and more to support their peers with their sobriety. The ARC has been working closely with the Student Government Association to further awareness and support for Aggies in recovery. Health Promotion offers a Recovery Services Guide of the Texas A&M campus, programming and education for National Recovery Month, and the annual Aggie Sober Tailgate. We also facilitate the Recovery Services Committee: a group of on and off-campus stakeholders dedicated to supporting students in recovery. We do not have a designated space at this time; however, we are currently searching for options for dedicated space. Texas A&M does not have recovery-specific housing; however, Health Promotion oversees a wellness living learning community called THRIVE for any student interested in holistic wellness. There is no formal requirement for membership in the ARC or participation in Health Promotion services and programming. Any newcomer is welcome!

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.
