Collegiate Recovery Community at CPCC

In addition to the normal struggles with coursework, relationship issues, and working on their recovery program, students in recovery also have to contend with the college environment, which is often unofficially organized around alcohol and other drug use. Collegiate Recovery CommunityThe Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) offers an alternative. It provides a supportive environment within the campus culture that reinforces the decision to disengage from addictive behaviors. It provides a community of peers with shared experiences, goals and values around recovery. It offers an educational opportunity alongside recovery support to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other. It reinforces accountability for recovering students that comes from self, peers and higher education staff. And finally, it provides a normative college experience for individuals in recovery apart from the culture of drinking/substance use that is present on today’s campuses.

The CRC meets every Monday at 12:15 p.m. to plan events and fellowship.  The meeting is on Central Campus in Worrell, Room 1130.  The CRC has Support Group Meetings on Wednesday from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. and on Thursday from 12:30 to  1:30 p.m.  These meetings also are held in Worrell, Room 1130. Students can engage with and seek support from other students fighting the same battles as well as have access to supportive faculty and staff members on Central Campus. The program is designed to assist these students with any struggles they may have in maintaining sobriety while being a successful college student.
