Given the great push towards increasing student retention, a rise in the hospitalizations of our students and a nationwide opiate epidemic, school administrators have begun to see the value in collegiate recovery.

There are many ways to support your students who are in, or seeking, recovery. A great place to start is to conduct a focus group with students who are in recovery to learn what they need and how the school can better support them. Identify your recovery champions on campus by convening a group of stakeholders, and begin to form partnerships and strategize on how best to support these students.

Creating a student organization is a viable means of beginning the process to establishing a formal Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP). A recovery focused student organization can be an easy solution to begin mobilizing students in recovery and identifying their needs. By identifying students in recovery that are ready and willing to spearhead the creation of a registered student organization, a recovery community will form and become the foundation of a CRP.

That’s why we provide guidance and technical assistance to campus professionals on how to support and implement recovery programs for college students.
