University of North Carolina at Charlotte
About the Program
The University of North Carolina at Charlotte Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC), housed within the Center for Wellness Promotion, was founded in August 2011. It provides a nurturing and affirming environment that allows UNC Charlotte students in recovery from substance use disorders to successfully pursue academic, personal and professional goals. The CRC also consults with students who have concerns about their use of alcohol and other drugs in order to provide them with options for treatment and other forms of assistance. The CRC offers students in recovery a wide range of programs, services, and resources that serve as a pathway to sobriety, academic achievement, and success. These include a dedicated lounge space for members, professional staff who provide recovery support, scholarship opportunities, recovery-related meetings (12-step, SMART Recovery, etc.), assistance in finding sober housing, and a wide range of social, educational, and service opportunities. The CRC also offers academic advocacy, student conduct advocacy, admissions advocacy, and alumni support. The CRC is a midsized community that maintains about 30 students in abstinence-based recovery. Students must apply to join the program, are held accountable to CRC commitment expectations, and membership is free. The CRC employs a full-time Collegiate Recovery Community Coordinator (who reports to the Director of the Center), a full-time Recovery Support Specialist, one graduate assistant, and interns and undergraduate student staff.
