Support the Center for Collegiate Recovery
The purpose of this project is to provide financial support to the Center for Collegiate Recovery at UTSA.
Who we are
We provide an environment where students in recovery or interested in recovery can excel in college while developing meaningful relationships with others pursuing a sober lifestyle. We encourage one another, connect students to resources and peers in recovery and offer programming to sustain health and sobriety. By ensuring students in recovery have a fulfilling and empowering experience at UTSA, we create leaders and allow more students to seek help and support one another.
Additionally, the CCR office provides education to students about drug and alcohol use and promotes healthy habits and harm reduction techniques for all students.
Each year, a reported 1,825 college students between the ages of 18 and 24 die from alcohol-related injuries. Additionally, 25% of college students report their alcohol use has negatively affected their academic performance. This funding will help the Recovery Center continue to provide support to UTSA students who are struggling with substance use or any other addictive behavior. Having a designated safe space on campus with professional staff and peer mentors is imperative to the safety and success of our students and places UTSA at the forefront of the recovery movement.
What Your Gifts Will Do
Your generous donation will support our program by providing funding for sober activities as well as assist with operational costs such as staff salary, office supplies and day-to-day expenses that keep the program up and running. We currently have 4 weekly recovery meetings and host a wide variety of events that help to foster healthy relationships and strengthen our recovery community, but we rely on donations to cover the cost of these activities. Past events include sober tailgating, a solar eclipse watch party, coin night to honor students’ time in sobriety and hiking trips.
