Collegiate Recovery Program

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD APPLICATION

Kennesaw State University is committed to supporting students who are in recovery from substance use and other process addictions. The Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) is designed to help students connect with each other, access resources necessary for them to succeed academically while sustaining recovery. Successfully achieve their personal and academic goals and participate in programming. Our mission is to create a supportive community where KSU students in recovery can thrive (by):

  • Removing any barriers to successful academic progression
  • Fostering peer support and accountability
  • Normalizing the recovery identity on campus
  • Providing information, resources, and consultation to students, families, faculty, and staff
  • Providing sober social activities on and off campus
  • Providing a dedicated space with caring professionals and student staff

The CRP is structured on a continuum to help support students as they develop in recovery, academically, and other areas of life. These are general guidelines which may be altered to serve the needs of individual students. Students may apply to CRP once they have six months of abstinence-based recovery. Students on medication assisted therapy with six month of sustained recovery are welcome to apply and meet with the program coordinator. For students with less than six months sustained recovery the center offers a full range of recovery support services.

The CRP is not a clinical treatment program; rather it is a recovery program based on social support models & theory. Participants voluntarily agree to respect the confidentiality of others and commit to creating a safe space that is rooted in the principles of recovery.

RECOVERY HOUSING FOR COLLEGIATE RECOVERY PROGRAM MEMBERS

To be considered for housing in The Outfit, students must apply, interview and be accepted to the program, have been in recovery from substance use disorder for at least six months and sign the Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) housing commitment contract. Students applying to be a part of The Outfit should be committed to the principles of recovery, possess strong ethical responsibility and be dedicated to growing in their recovery and academics.
