Collegiate Recovery Community
If you’re a Husker in recovery from substance use, we’d like to connect. You can help shape our recovery community by sharing your experience.
The college social environment can present additional challenges to students in recovery or seeking recovery from addiction. Nebraska’s new Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) will support a student’s decision to remain sober by connecting students with a community of like-minded peers.
Recovery doesn't need to be any more difficult than it already is and that is why we are here to lend a hand to anyone in need of our support.
Research shows that students in recovery who participate in collegiate recovery programs attain higher GPAs, higher persistence rates and higher graduation rates.
Students in the Collegiate Recovery Community will gain:
- Social support and fellowship with other students who are in recovery
- Access to Alcoholic Anonymous meetings
- Opportunities for leadership in the Collegiate Recovery Community
- Referrals to specialized services such as individual counseling, well-being coaching, tutoring, and financial aid
