What is the Collegiate Recovery Community?
We believe that students in recovery should have a college environment free from shame and stigma, with support and services tailored to their needs and designed with the aid of other students in recovery.
Through our Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) we provide a nurturing environment in which students recovering from addiction obtain recovery support while working towards their collegiate goals. Participation in the CRC opens new opportunities for long-term academic and career growth. New social and professional networks, activities and events help students to build positive life skills while they are supported in their decision to live a life in recovery. The CRC offers students a “typical” college experience without the burden of alcohol or other drugs.
The CRC is not a treatment facility or a halfway house. We do not provide residential or outpatient treatment or work with government entities such as drug court, probation, or parole. We support students at Oregon State University with three or more months of sobriety who want to remain drug- and alcohol-free.
