About the Program

The University of Utah’s Recovery at the U program was founded in 2016 in Salt Lake City, Utah. We are located within the university’s Student Affairs division, specifically within the Center for Student Wellness. For programming and event needs we utilize space within various locations throughout the campus and greater community. Our program is staffed by one full-time Recovery Program and Harm Reduction Coordinator and one part-time Recovery Program Assistant which is a student-filled position. Our program size is currently small, but we are excited to be dedicating more resources and time to development and growth of the program. Our current programming looks like bimonthly events and meetings as well as support within individual meetings, education, and a network of support. Requirements for membership are to maintain student status and uphold the standards that are expected from all University students (I.e. responsible class attendance, academic mentoring and advisement, and study support). A newcomer to our community can immediately participate in full with our meetings, events, and in receiving individual support.

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.
