Collegiate Recovery Program

Mission

Metropolitan State University’s Collegiate Recovery Program provides support and resources for students who have challenges with substance use or other behavioral addictions. We also support students working toward long-term recovery to increase overall well-being and meet educational, professional and personal goals.

Goals

  • Provide a safe and supportive community to students who are in all stages of recovery.
  • Reduce health disparities in addiction within marginalized communities and provide support for Metropolitan State University students from those communities.
  • Connect students in recovery with supporting resources and community connections.
  • Make a positive impact on student learning objectives, educational outcomes and goals, and professional aspirations.
  • Foster student-centered recovery through physical, mental, social and spiritual wellbeing through culturally responsive services.
  • Educate and build better awareness about substance use and addiction that promotes healing and long-term recovery.
