About the Program

The Tompkins Cortland Community College Collegiate Recovery Program (TCCRP) is part of Health Services. Our dedicated space is a multi-purpose location that hosts a quiet study space, a meeting room, and offices for AOD prevention and recovery staff. There is one part-time Recovery Program Specialist. This staff position will transition to full-time in Fall 2020. The Recovery Program Specialist also lives on campus as a Staff-in-Residence and is available for off-hour emergencies. Recovery specific housing is not currently available, but themed housing is planned for Fall 2020. The TCCRP is small, hosting between 5 and 10 students, with a mid-size associated student club with over 20 listed members.

The TCCRP offers recovery support meetings, student events, educational programming, and campus and community resource referrals. We work with our student club, the Alliance for Recovery Community at Tompkins Cortland (ARCTC), College Initiative Upstate (CIU), the Addiction Center of Broome County (ACBC), and a number of other community organizations in Tompkins and Cortland counties.

Membership is as simple as attending meetings or utilizing the space. Outlines for future membership standards are currently in process. Newcomers are welcome to drop in at any point during open hours to see the space, connect with staff, join ARCTC, and review volunteer opportunities in the TCCRP and other college organizations.

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.
