About the Program

Thomas Jefferson University’s Recovery Program was founded in 2021 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Program is named “The Rams for Recovery”. We are temporarily located on East Falls campus of the University. We are continuously making our efforts to seek safe group space on campus for those in recovery and their allies. We currently do not provide on-campus housing for students in recovery yet. We currently have two faculty leads as well as three part-time student workers who are supported by the Independence Blue Cross Foundation’s generous grant. Our program is considered small-sized at this time. The Rams for Recovery holds weekly meetings and monthly events to help increase the awareness about the importance of recovery-friendly community in higher education. The monthly events range from a mental health fair for students to a Narcan training to list a few. We partner and collaborative with the Counseling Center on East Falls campus, the Office of Student Life, the Office of Residence, and the Gallagher Athletic, Recreation, and Convocation Center to hold such events. We are currently developing a student organization or club. To join and participate in our program, you need to self-identify as someone in recovery. We are working to collaboratively build a recovery-friendly educational environment at the University, and making group rules and expectations for program participation and maintenance. Basic participation may include our hang-out time to stay connected with one another albeit this may evolve as the Program continues growing. Our student workers and students in recovery are big advocates for service and increasing the recognition of building and persisting recovery-friendly campus community. Newcomers are welcome to participate in the Program and its events and encouraged to collectively build this community at the University

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.
