About the Program

The Collegiate Recovery Community at the University of North Carolina Wilmington is located in the Hundley Health Education Center housed within our Student Recreation Center. Our small program is presently in the midst of rebuilding and we welcome all individuals in recovery, hoping for recovery or in support of recovery. We offer a range of events and support geared towards all levels of engagement. Currently, we employ two part time staff (one temporary employee and one graduate assistant) dedicated to the CRC as well as an additional full-time professional staff member if supplemental support is needed. The UNCW CRC Hawks have consistent hours each week within the Hundley Health Education Center for students in recovery to hang out, study together, and find support. Our CRC Hawks not only have access to many links within Wilmington’s rich recovery community, we also have strong supports and mentors here on campus. We do not offer recovery oriented housing on campus however the CRC is equipped to assist students in securing supportive housing within our community.

A collegiate recovery program (CRP) is a College or University-provided, supportive environment within the campus culture that reinforces the decision to engage in a lifestyle of recovery from substance use. It is designed to provide an educational opportunity alongside recovery support to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other.
