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. Students members are asked to be actively engaged with their recovery plan and maintain involvement with CRC activities. If you would like to learn more about the CRC, email us or stop by EMU room 331.

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 and recovery support, mentorship, and life skills training.
Members have the opportunity to participate in this one-hour weekly virtual seminar designed to foster relationships among members and provide a space for members to receive feedback and guidance from peers and staff.
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, SMART Recovery, Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA), Families Anonymous, and Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA).
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.
Recovery Ally Training
Join us for a 1.5-hour training where we:
- Provide education on substance use disorders and the process of recovery
- Help confront and reduce the stigma of addiction through the way we think, speak, and act
- Demonstrate ways to effectively support persons who may be struggling with substance use, including resources available on and off campus
- Demonstrate ways to foster an inclusive and supportive environment for students in recovery
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.
Join the Collegiate Recovery Center staff, students in recovery, and members from the community for a conversation around mental health and recovery. During this panel, individuals will get to share how they navigate through their recovery and take care of their mental well-being. As an audience you will get the opportunity to ask the panel members questions regarding recovery and learn about more campus and community resources.
Prevention and intervention rely on collaboration, but often those who work in this field of work find themselves in silos. One gap recognized was lack of connection among alcohol and other drug prevention, intervention, and recovery staff across the state of Oregon's institutions of higher education.
With support from Oregon Health Authority and leadership from the University of Oregon, the Oregon Prevention Coalition was formed.
Since its first meeting in the summer of 2020, the coalition has created a space for staff to build relationships, receive training, and garner statewide collaboration. The coalition meets on the first Tuesday of each month and averages one training each quarter.
Initially focused on public, four-year institutions, as of winter 2021 the coalition is expanding to community colleges. Eventually, the coalition will encompass the state’s private colleges and universities.
