LION UP Collegiate Recovery Program
LION UP Recovery has been established to help those students who identify as being in recovery. Through the efforts of the University Counseling Center under the Department of Student Affairs, staff trained with substance use disorders and recovery has put together a CRP (Collegiate Recovery Program). A CRP is a program which offers specialized and strategic support to help students achieve growth and success in their recovery and academic journey. Collegiate Recovery Programs offer this type of support, much like student athletes and veterans receive on college campuses.
Collegiate recovery programs are not designed as treatment programs; they are designed to offer extended recovery support on college campuses so your student has a safe harbor and a community of like minded others to be with. Students are required to attend weekly seminars, attend at least two recovery support meetings a week, attend CRP events including monthly celebration of recovery meetings, sober tailgating etc.
