Starting a Collegiate Recovery Program
Though Collegiate Recovery Programs aren’t a completely new concept, they are still not quite a household term.
However, addiction and recovery are becoming much more known by high school and college students and parents. As college administrators, we have a responsibility to support these folks in their recovery so that they can continue to grow, develop, and fulfill their academic and adult potential.
Collegiate Recovery Programs offer this type of support. Starting a CRP can be challenging, but ARHE is here to help. We encourage you to utilize all the resources on the ARHE website to develop your Collegiate Recovery Program. All the ARHE members have been in your shoes. We know it’s difficult, and we want to support any and all efforts towards changing the trajectory of recovering students lives.
There are many models out there, and it’s definitely NOT a one-size

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.
