Virginia Commonwealth University

We work to ensure that students do not have to choose between their recovery and their education.

Who We Are

We support students inside and outside the classroom, organize events and trips, offer recovery housing and scholarships, and provide space and support for recovery meetings.

Collegiate Recovery Programs (CRP) are structured supports for students in recovery from substance use disorders who are seeking a degree in higher education. To connect, please email,. call Tom Bannard, (804) 366-8027, or make an appointment..
