About the Program

The College of New Jersey’s (TCNJ) Collegiate Recovery Program is dedicated to providing comprehensive support to students in recovery. Full time staff is located within Student Affairs: Health and Wellness. Dedicated space includes a residence hall for recovery housing as well as office space for administrative work, counseling sessions, and our late night activities program.  TCNJ’s CRP is staffed by a Community Recovery Supervisor, Program Support Specialist, House Mentor, and an Activities Coordinator. Currently, TCNJ’s CRP is small, fewer than 15 students. To support students in recovery TCNJ offers counseling (group and individual), substance free activities, and SMART Recovery meetings on campus. Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are across the street from campus. TCNJ also offers housing for students in recovery called Lion’s House.  Lion’s House is staffed by a House Mentor who provides support and coordinates social, recreational, and service activities. To live in Lion’s House, students must be abstinent from alcohol and other drugs, be committed to recovery, and abide by a community contract. Newcomers are welcome and there are no requirement for students who wish to participate in the other CRP programs, such as counseling or the late night activity program.

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.
