The Collegiate Recovery Community provides a no-cost support system to students who are working to improve their addictive behavior, who are curious about making changes, and those who are impacted by their friend or family member's addictive behavior. Weekly recovery meetings are entirely student-led and are all-recovery welcoming.

Recovery Ally Training

 An interactive presentation hosted by the Collegiate Recovery Community to gain a better understanding of recovery from addiction, ways to eliminate stigma, and how to become an Ally to those seeking a sober curious lifestyle!

The CRC constantly strives to foster an environment where students in or seeking recovery feel accepted by their peers, are encouraged to share about their recovery, feel comfortable asking for help, and are celebrated by the community. By becoming a Recovery Ally, you are declaring to students in or seeking recovery that you embody these ideals. 

Each training will cover the following:

  • A high-level overview of addiction and recovery
  • Addiction and recovery on campus
  • Recovery friendly language
  • How to connect students with the CRC
  • Ways to get involved as a Recovery Ally

Who should take this training?

Everyone! This training is available for students, faculty, staff, and community members. We can either host the presentation or come to you! Recovery Ally Training is strongly recommended for any faculty or staff member interested in being an Ally for the student they engage with. A CRC staff member, a CRC student, or a trained Recovery Ally will lead this training.

Once you complete the training, you will receive a magnet that designates your space as a supportive environment for individuals in recovery.

CRC Student Testimonials

"I kept trying to recover on my own, but I was never successful. I finally reached six months of sobriety and couldn't have done it without the support of the CRC."


"Friday's recovery meeting has been something I always look forward to. It is open to anyone recovering from any unwanted behavior, particularly in the form of addiction. I get to fellowship with people in the recovery community, decompress, and reset after the challenges of the school week."
