About the Program
The CRP at University of Tennessee at Knoxville is an emerging or developing CRP that is a pilot program funded by the State of Tennessee and overseen by that SMART Initiative (not formally affiliated with a campus department). There is no dedicated space on campus, but the emerging program does have outreach events and recurring recovery meetings at the university parish. There are no housing options and all staff are employed under the SMART Initiative. The program is small (with less than 14 students at any given time). There are weekly recovery meetings and monthly campus-based events. Affiliated organizations include the Institute of UT Public Service, Tennessee Dept of Mental Health and Substance Abuse, and the UTK Center for Health Education and Wellness. Members must must meet work hours for membership as a paid student recovery ambassador and there are no requirements for student participation. A newcomer can attend any events and offer feedback to guide program development

COLLEGIATE RECOVERY PROGRAM
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.
