Collegiate Recovery Program


The mission of the Burnout Broncos is to provide a supportive community where students in recovery, and those in hope of recovery, can achieve academic success while participating in a unique college experience free from addiction to alcohol and other substances.

Who are the Burnout Broncos? 

The Collegiate Recovery Program, The Burnout Broncos, 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 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 with the Burnout Broncos during our open hours, join 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.

Our Collegiate Recovery Program 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.
