About the Program

The UNT Collegiate Recovery Program was founded in September of 2014. We are located within the College of Health and Public Service and the Department of Rehabilitation & Health Services. The UNT CRP currently possesses offices and group space within Chilton Hall to support peer recovery coaching, case management, peer support and faculty engagement efforts. Also, the UNT CRP has dedicated space for an on-campus recovery nest, which can house up to 48 students. Presently, we employ one full time director, a part time graduate case manager and 3 part-time student assistants. Additionally, we offer several practicum and internship opportunities every semester. The UNT CRP is considered a mid-sized recovery program and offers multiple supports, which include several weekly peer-run group meetings, a recovery seminar/class, weekly case management sessions and direct access to an on-site intensive outpatient program (IOP). The UNT CRP also supports Eagle Peer Recovery, which is a recovery focused student organization that has more than 800 members. In addition to the student organization, the UNT CRP works closely with the Substance Abuse Resource Center (SARC) and the Dean of Students to support students experiencing substance related and other quality of life issues. Student organization requirements consist simply of a desire to participate while UNT CRP membership requirements include a commitment to recovery as evidenced by working a healthy recovery program for a minimum of 90 days. All peer led recovery meetings are open to newcomers and the UNT CRP works diligently to engage all students in an effort to promote recovery oriented outcomes and appropriate campus and community based referrals when needed.

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.
