Substance Abuse Recovery

What is Recovery?

A commitment to long term recovery from addiction.

"A process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential."
--Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration

What’s the Collegiate Recovery Community like at DePaul?

Our Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) embodies the Take Care DePaul message by fostering connection and support among all interested students. By being a part of this community, students will succeed academically, socially, and personally in a safe, supportive, and collective environment. Recovery can mean different things to different people, but at DePaul’s CRC, all are welcome. There are lots of ways to be involved. Email us to learn more at hpw@depaul.edu!
