Collegiate Recovery

Collegiate Recovery is alive and well at UNC Asheville! We believe that students in recovery from substance use disorders, behavioral addictions and/or mental health issues should not have to choose between an abstinence based recovery lifestyle and having a full college experience. With commitment, determination, and the right support, both are possible.

The Collegiate Recovery Community Program (CRP) offers support services including weekly check-in meetings to increase accountability and provide structure. We can facilitate referrals for mental health counseling, psychiatric care, and medical services as needed. CRP staff help students connect with campus resources, navigate the academic system, and engage in the campus community. CRP sponsored events are scheduled throughout the academic year to build community, celebrate success, and share resources.

The Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) is a student led group for students in recovery who are willing to share their experience, strength, and hope with the campus community and beyond. Students involved in the CRC support and encourage one another, plan outreach and educational programs, and do service work.

The Health and Counseling Center will be re-establishing its College Recovery Program in the Fall 2023 semester.  If you would like to be part of this group, please contact Jay Dismukes, Substance Abuse Counselor –
