What is the Collegiate Recovery Program? 

The Collegiate Recovery Program provides support and resources to UAlbany students who: 

  • are in recovery or considering it 
  • want to better understand their relationship with substance use, gambling and/or other concerns 
  • have friends and/or family members with concerning substance use or problem gambling

Recovery is a highly personalized process of change through which people improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives and strive to reach their full potential.

The Collegiate Recovery Program aims to foster a recovery-ready campus community and hosts programs to increase awareness and reduce stigma related to substance use disorder and other addictive behaviors.
