Collegiate recovery programs (CRPs) offer support to college students in recovery from substance use disorders. That support is centered around a community of students in recovery, recovery-supportive programming, and a space on campus where recovery is actively celebrated and normalized. While the first CRP was established 40 years ago, recent proliferation of these programs across the United States has led to a diversity of models and practices that is not yet well catalogued. National surveys of CRPs are helpful in demonstrating the range of variation among CRPs and the positive effects these programs have on the students they serve, although there are methodological limitations. A case study of the CRP at the University of Texas at Austin provides an example of a CRP model at one end of the spectrum of variation. These programs provide a unique opportunity for institutions of higher education and the communities in which they are embedded to support college students in recovery from substance use disorders.
