About the Program
The University of Iowa Collegiate Recovery Program was founded in 2017. We are housed within the Division of Student Life and are a sponsored by a partnership between Student Wellness, University Counseling Service (UCS), and Office of the Vice President for Student Life. We have a recovery space housed in the Iowa Memorial Union where our programming is held. We have two part-time staff coordinators based out of Student Wellness and UCS. We are considered a small program but are growing. We offer support groups, workshops, open office hours and are working to add more community events. We also offer a Recovery Ally Training for students, faculty and staff and are committed to reducing the stigma associated with recovery and substance use disorders. Students can drop into CRP events at any time. The University of Iowa CRP provides an environment that supports the therapeutic and educational needs of Iowa students who are considering recovery, in recovery, or wanting to support those in any stage of recovery from addiction.
