Collegiate Recovery Program

If you are a student in recovery and want to make friends and engage in sober events, join the University of Denver Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP). As DU strives to promote inclusive and academic excellence, the CRC will continue to do its part by contributing comprehensive services to students in recovery. 

  • Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) meetings
  • one-on-one recovery coaching meetings
  • 24/7 access to the Center for Collegiate Recovery (CCR)

The DU CR  offers alcohol and drug-free social events, support meetings, peer ambassadors, and educational seminars and scholarships. We work to foster a supportive environment within the campus culture that reinforces the decision to pursue sobriety. It is designed to provide academic excellence alongside recovery support to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other.
