About the Program

The Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) at The University of California, Berkeley is a program for students in recovery as well as those who are currently struggling with alcohol and drug use. Established by a student collective passionate about recovery in 2017, we are a community on campus dedicated to supporting students in their recovery efforts by providing resources for recovery, health & wellness, and academic success. With these efforts, we aim to create an inclusive environment and supportive community to help students thrive at Cal and beyond.

The collegiate recovery program at Cal is open to students in all stages of recovery and recognizes there are multiple pathways to recovery. We offer a community-based approach utilizing peer support services. Our currently available services include weekly on-campus recovery meetings, monthly sober social events, individual and group support, and recovery advocacy/service opportunities.
