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 fits all. There are several pieces to consider in developing a CRP that’s right for your institution. And then some of those pieces will depend on specific circumstances at your institution.
