About the Program

The Moc Collegiate Recovery Program was founded in 2019 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. We are located within the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC), and more specifically within the Center of Student Well-Being (CSW). The CSW supports us in our foundation and message that recovery is a model of wellness. We currently hold meetings in the UTC University Center. We currently have one Director and one Assistant Director within the CSW. We additionally have an internship opportunity connected with the Social Work Department and a Graduate Assistant position. Our Program is considered small sized as we are working on establishing a new program, but is well supported by the campus. The Moc Collegiate Recovery Program will provide programming throughout the semester, recovery group meetings, and a connection to campus and community resources. We will coordinate activities such as hikes, yoga, and other mindful events. In order to participate in the program of activities you need to be working on an active plan in recovery and plan to continue working your recovery program. Participation will include but not limited to our program sessions, lunches and/or dinners, and events. Our staff and participants are mental health advocates and strive to challenge the stigma surrounding addiction and recovery. All newcomers are welcomed and encouraged to participate in events and programs available where we will explore all aspects of recovery.

A Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) is a college or university-provided program that includes a supportive environment within the campus culture. 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.
