Mission Statement

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University's Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) offers a positive affirming environment where recovering students can successfully pursue academic, personal, and professional goals to enrich their quality of life and become vibrant leaders of their communities.  

Who are we?

Support from peers and licensed mental health professionals assist students in recovery from addictions. The CRC empowers students to maintain healthy lifestyles by providing activities, peer mentoring, groups, seminars, and resources that encourage academic achievement and support recovery maintenance. Our goal is to ensure that students in recovery feel integrated in the fabric that is N.C. A&T.

 What is Recovery? 

  • The process of becoming healthy after an illness or injury; the act or process of recovering.

  • The process of returning to a normal state after a period of difficulty. 

  • The return of something that has been lost, stolen, etc. 

 What is Collegiate Recovery?

Collegiate Recovery provides support and resources for students attending North Carolina A&T State University who are in the recovery process from alcohol, drugs, and other addictive disorders. 

The CRC is a safe place for students in recovery to connect with others and attend 12 Step-life skills meetings, as well as with planning campus activities. 

What the Collegiate Recovery Community IS NOT:

The CRC is NOT a treatment facility. We do not provide residential nor outpatient treatment services. We do not work with government programming such as drug court, probation, or parole. We are not a halfway house. We provide support to students at N.C. A&T who are in recovery and desire to continue to live sober.

Please see below for a list of services and support we offer. 


What we provide:

  • A safe place to meet others in recovery

  • A place for personal and academic growth

  • A place where you can receive support

  • A place to have fun

  • A place where you can support others in recovery

Want to be an Ally? Allies work with the CRC to help students get what they need to stay healthy and sober, and thrive academically and personally. Allies offer a supportive network and help create a feeling of belonging. Knowing that someone believes in them and their potential for success is sometimes all that’s needed for students in recovery to stay confident and succeed.
