Collegiate Recovery Community
Collegiate Recovery Community
Are you a UCF student in recovery from substance abuse or dependency? Are you struggling to find your niche on campus or find a way to enjoy the “college experience” and manage your recovery? The Collegiate Recovery Community is a support network developed just for you! Young adults can often feel isolated and frustrated when balancing their recovery with being a “typical” college student. We understand the stigma of being sober, especially on a college campus. The simple act of letting others know you are in recovery or interested in recovery is often very difficult.
The CRC is a network of students who share a common goal, sustain a healthy drug-free lifestyle and create lasting friendships.
The CRC provides a community where recovery is supported.
The CRC offers support, fellowship, and resources for students in recovery.
The CRC sustains and nurtures a safe and authentic community by offering access to recovery resources and a fun, drug-free college experience. This Community is founded upon values that enable students to develop behaviors and skills necessary to flourish in recovery. These values include:
- Clean, Sober, and Healthy – In addition to attending recovery meetings regularly (either on campus or off) that enhance all aspects of mind, body and spiritual health, students involved in the CRC have the opportunity to learn, encourage and socialize with one another.
- Connected in Community – Our members provide empathy and support by understanding recovery is unique for everyone.
- Our Creed – Students in our Community will adhere to the UCF Creed of Integrity, Scholarship, Community, Creativity, and Excellence.
Is the CRC only for students in recovery?
The short answer is no. The CRC does not define recovery or sobriety for any individual. The CRC is open to students in recovery, as well as those students that want to be a part of a community that can have fun without the pressures of alcohol and/or substance use.
How Do I Join?
The CRC is a student-run community of self-disclosed individuals in recovery in conjunction with students that simply wish to live alcohol and substance free. The only requirements to join the CRC are:
- A willingness to stop addictive behavior
- To be a part of a community that will provide a nurturing, affirming environment in which individuals recovering from or concerned about addictive disorders can find peer support
