About us

The Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) at Cal is a program for students in recovery from substance use as well as those who are currently struggling with alcohol and drug use. We are a community on campus dedicated to supporting students in their recovery efforts by providing resources for recovery, health & wellness, and academic success. With these efforts, we aim to create an inclusive environment and supportive community to help students thrive at Cal and beyond.

The collegiate recovery program at Cal is open to students in all stages of recovery and recognizes there are multiple pathways to recovery. We offer a community-based approach utilizing peer support services.

Our mission

  • Hold a safe space where students can create community, foster solidarity, and combat stigma attached to recovery.

  • Empower and advocate for students in recovery as a marginalized population, as a university-recognized program.

What we offer

  • On-campus recovery meetings

  • Sober social events

  • Individual and group support

Overdose Prevention

Naloxone Education & Availability Project

In partnership with UHS-PartySafe@Cal 

Naloxone is a medication that works almost immediately to reverse opiate overdose. It has few known adverse effects, no potential for abuse, and can be rapidly administered through intramuscular injection or nasal spray. While most professional first responders and emergency departments, including UCPD, are equipped with naloxone, they may not arrive in time to revive overdose victims.  Educated and equipped bystanders can effectively take steps to reverse an opioid overdose

UHS-PartySafe@Cal has obtained a standing order to distribute naloxone through the CDPH Naloxone Distribution Project. It provides free naloxone to students, staff and faculty who watch this Naloxone Training video and complete a brief follow up quiz. Upon quiz completion, participants will receive an email with their Naloxone Training Confirmation which they can show to obtain two (2) Narcan Nasal Sprays at:

  • UHS-Tang Center – Health Promotion on Thursdays from 1-4:30pm 
  • CRP @ 102 Sproul Hall on Wednesdays from 1-4pm
