About the Program
The University of Virginia’s Hoos in Recovery (HiR) community started in 2006, and is comprised of UVA students, faculty, staff, and alumni. The group is aligned with the Elson Student Health Center, specifically with the Gordie Center for Substance Abuse Prevention at UVA. We have a dedicated group space on campus, along with a new full-time BASICS and Recovery Support Specialist and a part-time Graduate Assistant. We measure membership through our large HiR listserve, and have regular participation from a much smaller group. Newcomers are welcome to reach out individually to our staff, and/or attend our two weekly meetings. We hope to expand our services immensely in the next year, based on members’ feedback and evidence-based approaches.

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.
