What is a CRP?

The Association of Recovery in Higher Education defines a collegiate recovery program (CRP) as a College or University-provided, supportive environment within the campus culture that reinforces the decision to engage in a lifestyle of recovery from substance use. It is designed to provide an educational opportunity alongside recovery support to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other.

The CRP at UNT utilizes a peer support model, using the experience of students in recovery to provide support to other students in recovery.

Vision: A collegiate atmosphere where all students in or seeking long-term recovery reach their maximum potential academically, emotionally, and professionally.

Mission: To provide an educational and empowering environment where students living in, or seeking, long-term recovery from substance use disorders, mental health illness, and other quality of life concerns can successfully realize their goals of academic success and an improved quality of life.

Values: The UNT CRP mission is based on basic principles of peer accountability, honesty, acceptance, empowerment, and trust.
