About the Program

The Center for Collegiate Recovery at UTSA is located in the Recreation Wellness Center and features a dedicated meeting space that is open to students throughout the day. We offer a variety of weekly recovery meetings including 12 step and SMART Recovery, and have a dedicated group of active members. In addition to recovery meetings, we host sober activities, support a student organization, and work with other campus partners to provide education about recovery. There is no formal requirement for membership; however, we encourage regular participation to ensure students get the most out of the CRP. We offer additional support to students in early recovery by matching them with a peer mentor and providing one on one recovery coaching with our licensed staff. We encourage all students who are in recovery or interested in living a sober lifestyle to come to any of our open meetings

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.
