The mission of the collegiate recovery is to provide support to students who are recovering from alcoholism and addiction as it pertains to living clean and sober at Santa Clara University. Our group's traditions are rooted in Ignatian spirituality and are inspired by the mission of Santa Clara University.

What is the Collegiate Recovery Program

The Collegiate Recovery Program, housed in the Wellness Center within the Office of Student Life provides a safe space and supportive community for students in recovery or seeking recovery from addiction. Participation at CRP is completely voluntary and there is no barrier to entry. Students at any stage of recovery and at any point in their academic journeys are welcome. Come hang out at CRP during our open hours, come to a support group meeting, attend a sober social event or just get in the loop about volunteer opportunities and upcoming activities. Recovery works and can be part of a genuine college experience.

CRP has 3 guiding principles:

  • A community of students in recovery from addiction: All ages and academic levels are welcome, from traditional undergraduates to non-traditional, graduate and professional students. 
  • Recovery-supportive programming: Programming includes student-organized and student-led peer support group meetings (some of which are 12-Step), as well as sober social activities, service opportunities and educational programming. We are always open to student suggestions for new meetings.
  • Committed people: CRP is run by full-time staff members who are knowledgeable about recovery resources on and off campus. We’re here to link you to resources and help you get the support you need. Call us, email us, or just stop by.
