Addiction Recovery Program in Ann Arbor Supports College Students
The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor has been leading an addiction recovery program to support students who battled a substance use disorder or are looking to stay away from drugs and alcohol instead of joining the school’s party scene.
The Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) has pioneered an alternative culture where students who need the support meet like-minded peers who are focused on staying sober and thriving academically.
The CRP is not a medical treatment program for students with substance use disorders but a program that provides personalized and holistic recovery support.
The students who are struggling with a substance use disorder will likely obtain a referral so that they can receive professional addiction treatment services at the location that best suits their needs.
In addition to providing a platform for students to connect with other people in recovery, the program emphasizes accountability. There are weekly check-ins conducted by the CRP team as well as case management.
