About the Program

The University of Mississippi Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) is nestled under the William Magee Center umbrella. The Collegiate Recovery Community is a small, registered student organization. The CRC focuses on providing a nurturing, affirming environment in which students recovering from substance use disorder can pursue academic goals, elicit social support, and engage in opportunities in the Lafayette Oxford University (LOU) community. The CRC has a dedicated Certified Prevention Specialist, Graduate Assistants, and student employees providing the best possible care and programming scope. With their help, the CRC is able to host daily weekday meetings. These meetings occur is specific group spaces and range from Mindfulness Meditation, AA meetings, and SMART Recovery. To join the CRC individuals must be enrolled in at least three credit hours as an undergraduate, master’s, or doctoral student. Students must have a minimum of three months in recovery, participate in our weekly events, remain abstinent from the use of alcohol and drugs, and are committed to recovery. As a CRC member you will have full access to all meetings and events. If you are curious about joining the CRC, please feel free to stop by any of our open meetings or our Sober Tailgates in the infamous Grove on gameday.

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.
