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

Our mission is to promote the personal, academic and social success of students in or seeking recovery. In this pursuit, we aim to:

  • 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
