About the Program

University at Albany Collegiate Recovery Program

The University at Albany Collegiate Recovery Program is housed as an arm of the Middle Earth Peer Assistance Program of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), Division of Student Affairs.  The program has meeting space within the Middle Earth Peer Assistance Program office suite. The Assistant Director for Prevention and Program Evaluation at CAPS, a licensed psychologist, provides professional leadership; two volunteer Peer Recovery Leaders also provide student organizational leadership or the program. The CRP is currently mid-size and growing. Recovery programming includes self-help and mutual aid groups on campus, counseling and support services, and peer-to-peer training and services through the Middle Earth program. Many campus offices and student groups are allies to our CRP and can be located in an asset map that is posted online at the Transforming Youth Recovery website. Membership in the CRP is open to any University at Albany student who is in recovery from substance use, mental health concerns, and related issues. Newcomers are welcome, and we look forward to your involvement.
