Collegiate Recovery Community

Welcome to the Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) at Iowa State University (ISU). Collegiate Recovery Community is a support-based and student-focused program to provide and connect students in recovery or seeking recovery from issues such as substance use, gambling, gaming, and more to the necessary services, resources, and opportunities to help them thrive at ISU.

Student Health and Wellness started building this community in early 2018, and plan to grow the opportunities and resources for students over the coming years. 

The Collegiate Recovery Community is committed to providing addiction recovery support during the challenges and growth that come with higher education. Recovery can include gaining independence from alcohol, other substance use, gambling, or other behavioral addictions. Our membership and focus are on students in order to make meeting your recovery and academic goals approachable and relevant. We aim to provide a variety of resources to assist a wide range of situations.
