Space to Grow

The Collegiate Recovery Center (CRC) provides an affirming environment in which recovering students can successfully pursue academic, personal, and professional goals. Students carry these experiences with them as they transition toward becoming vibrant community leaders. The CRC is open to all students interested in recovery who are actively pursuing higher education at the UO. You do not need to be a member to access many of the CRC's services; all students are welcome.

Membership in the Collegiate Recovery Center is open to all UO students who are actively pursuing recovery, having maintained abstinence for three months followed by continuous recovery. Additionally, students are asked to participate in a recovery program of their choice and attend weekly, open topic seminars held at the CRC. If you would like to learn more about the CRC, stop by EMU room 331.

Program Application

Supporting Each Other on Campus

Many of us come to the UO looking to find our place on campus. Our
hope is that the CRC will provide a supportive community to help you
navigate recovery and achieve academic success. We are students from
all different walks of life, but our recovery is one thing we all share.

Components of Recovery

The Collegiate Recovery Center assists recovering college students with a comprehensive support system of social, academic, and recovery support; mentorship; and life skills training.

Recovery Center Seminar

All members are required to participate in this one-hour, educational seminar designed to foster relationships among members and provide a space for members to receive feedback and guidance from peers and staff. Weekly meetings are on Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. in the CRC.

Support Meetings

AA Fridays at 6:00 p.m. in the CRC (EMU 331)

If you would like to start a support meeting, we are more than willing to help. We can also connect you with community meetings including Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Refuge Recovery, Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA), Families Anonymous, and Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA).

Academic Support

Students receive general academic advising from an advisor who understands what it means to be a student in recovery. Many students also form study groups to help support each other in the classroom.

Community Service

We believe that service is crucial to maintaining long-term, quality sobriety. Our members are active in various service projects and focus on giving back to the community around them.


We Welcome Diversity

The University of Oregon Collegiate Recovery Center fully supports and respects issues of multicultural diversity and individual uniqueness. We view diversity as encompassing a broad spectrum of intersecting identities including ethnic and racial identity; nationality; sexual identity; gender identity and expression; age; ability status; religious and spiritual identity; socioeconomic status; body shape, size, and appearance; and family composition. We recognize the critical impact of intersecting identities on a person’s lived experiences and are committed to creating a safe, welcoming, and affirming environment.

We acknowledge the effects of systemic oppression, discrimination, stereotypes, prejudice, power, and privilege on students’ lives. At times, these factors significantly limit our students from achieving their fullest potential in their educational journey, physical health, and emotional well-being. To counteract this, we take responsibility for contributing to a university campus community that is welcoming and inclusive of all diversity. We strive to live this responsibility by committing to our own life-long process of enhancing our multicultural competency, advocating for our students, and engaging in difficult dialogues about these issues individually and as members of the broader campus and national community.

Recovery House Opening Fall 2018

As a recovery center, we strive to provide the best resources to facilitate your mental and physical well-being. As such, we will be opening a recovery house in Fall 2018. This is a space for recovering students to live together in a supportive environment.

The house is located very close to campus on Moss Street. There are two single bedrooms and a double loft. Rent will include utilities.

Residents are required to be abstinent for at least six months, attend weekly recovery meetings, and must be active members in the Collegiate Recovery Center.
