Supporting Students in Recovery from Substance Use Disorders

Primary tabs

Students in recovery from substance use disorders look just like other Tech students. They are dedicated to their pursuit of higher education, yet they face unique — and often hidden — challenges as they work toward earning a degree from Georgia Tech. A supportive community can help.

Georgia Tech’s Collegiate Recovery Program — CRP — provides a safe and welcoming community for students in recovery. Involvement with the CRP is about much more than staying away from substances. These students challenge one another and stretch themselves to promote growth in recovery and attain academic success. They share their experience, strength and hope with each other and the campus community.

Research has demonstrated that Collegiate Recovery Programs work. Students enrolled in these programs nationwide have significantly reduced risk of relapse, as well as higher retention and graduation rates than the general student population. Georgia Tech’s CRP is excited to be part of a rapidly expanding movement on campuses across the country!

Through active participation in the Collegiate Recovery Program, student members receive social and emotional support — from one another and professional staff – and engage in structured activities.
