College is a place to live and learn independently.

For some students, this transition involves high-risk drinking and drug use. Other students decide they will abstain from alcohol or other drug use due to addiction. Still others start college life already active in their sobriety. The general lack of understanding about addiction among college students can be stigmatizing. Statements like “Everyone drinks in college” are not uncommon. The early years in college are often dangerous for students who have been in recovery from addiction. Maintaining a lifestyle in recovery may feel at odds with the “typical” college experience.

We’re here to help.

History

In 2013, Oregon State took steps toward meeting the needs of students in recovery from drug or alcohol addiction by launching a Collegiate Recovery Community funded in part by Pepsi through the OSU Beverage Partnership. The Collegiate Recovery Community provides an opportunity for students to enjoy a typical college social life, with additional support, in a recovery-first environment. In 2016, the program expanded to include a donor-funded Recovery Living Community in partnership with University Housing and Dining Services.
