About the Program

The UTRGV Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) is part of a national effort to meet the needs of students in recovery from alcohol, drugs, and other addictions. We provide an environment on campus in which students seeking and wanting to sustain recovery can flourish and learn affirmative methods to better manage the challenges of their recovery journey.

The CRP fosters a safe place for students to learn, grow, and make positive decisions while improving self-confidence in both the academic and social environments. Participation contributes to a network of mutual support, development of commitment to individual recovery, and a meaningful understanding of life in recovery.

The CRP utilizes resources from both the university and surrounding communities to help students engage in a lifestyle that is healthy and free of addictive behaviors so that their time at UTRGV is one of success and pride.

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.
