About the Program
Tufts Recovery Community was established in 2007 and is located within Tufts University at the Lincoln Filene Center, with dedicated CRP space in the lower level of the building. Tufts understands the unique challenges that students in recovery face in the college environment and is committed to helping students in recovery through a network of supports and resources throughout campus and in the local community. There are two housing options, Wilson House for first year students and Carpenter House for upper class students. Tufts Recovery community has one part-time paid student worker, with on average 1-14 students or designated as a small CRP. Resources include those within the larger university system including the Office of Health Promotion & Prevention, Counseling and Mental Health Services, Dean of Student Affairs Office (AS&E) and Fletcher’s Office of Student Affairs, along with the University Chaplaincy. Tufts Recovery Community is affiliated with ARHE and ACHA. Newcomers are welcome to participate in the CRP and there are no requirements for participation.
