Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC)

Mission statement:

The Collegiate Recovery Community at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte provides a nurturing, affirming environment in which students recovering from addictive disorders can successfully pursue academic, personal and professional goals for the purpose of enhancing their quality of life and becoming productive members of society.

The Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) at UNC Charlotte supports students recovering from addictions. We offer programming, resources, and activitCollegiate Recovery Communityies that provide a pathway to both recovery and academic achievement. Our goal is to provide educational opportunities alongside recovery support to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other. The CRC can offer a “typical” college experience for students in recovery apart from the culture of drinking or use that is present on today's university campuses.

The CRC is a safe, supportive environment for students that are recovering from alcohol, drugs and/or other addictive disorders, located in The Student Health Center, room 121.We also welcome students curious about sobriety to explore, experience, and understand recovery at UNC Charlotte.

The Collegiate Recovery program offers weekly 12 step meetings, experiential activities, peer-mentorship as well as volunteer opportunities where sober students serve their community, build friendships, develop a solid support system, and build a lifetime of fun, happy memories. Need help navigating help on campus? The CRC also links students with other campus resources needed to succeed in school including advisors, tutors and mentors.
