About the Program

Badger Recovery provides support and community for students in active recovery. We also welcome allies, family, friends, and students working toward recovery through a risk-reduction approach. We understand recovery can be individually defined and we honor multiple pathways to recovery. We value the diverse experiences of our members and their personal goals. All of our meetings and events are substance free spaces and we ask that all individuals participating in our events are not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Students working with Badger Recovery have access to dedicated university staff who will support and advocate for them along their recovery journey.

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.

The ARHE Website is currently undergoing updates. While we anticipate minimal disruption, please email mack@collegiaterecovery.org if you experience any issues with the website and we apologize for any inconvenience.
