Collegiate Recovery Programs
Collegiate Recovery Programs (CRPs) are college or university-provided, supportive environments within the campus culture that reinforce the decision to engage in a lifestyle of recovery from substance use. CRPs have been supported by the ODCP since 2018. There are currently six funded CRPs working with the ODCP:
- West Virginia University
- Marshall University
- BridgeValley Community and Technical College
- West Virginia State University
- Concord University
- West Virginia University Institute of Technology
The ODCP hosts regular meetings with the CRPs and the West Virginia Collegiate Recovery Network, which is supported through state opioid response (SOR) funding allocated from BBH. The ODCP also participates on the Higher Education SUD Continuum of Care Collaborative. The purpose of the Collaborative is to increase communication, partnership and collaboration to improve access to evidence informed/based practices across the continuum of care (prevention, early intervention, treatment, recovery) services for higher education stakeholders (students, faculty, staff, administrators, government partners, legislators, policy makers).
Recovery residences provide safe, healthy, and drug and alcohol-free living environments that support individuals seeking recovery from substance use disorder. The National Alliance of Recovery Residences (NARR) formed in 2011 to develop best-practice standards and ethical principles to guide recovery housing operations across the country. The West Virginia Alliance of Recovery Residences (WVARR) is the state's designated NARR affiliate. WVARR implements certification and grievance processes for local recovery residences, and supports the recovery residence community through advocacy, training, and data-collection. Due to recent legislation, West Virginia recovery residences will be required to become WVARR-certified in order to be eligible for state funding and referrals from state-funded agencies. West Virginia certification opened publicly in November 2020. The link to apply is posted on the WVARR website.
