Collegiate Recovery Community

About CRC

Appstate crcAppalachian State University's Collegiate Recovery Community offers support to students who are in recovery from any kind of addiction and/or mental illness including but not limited to, substance use, eating disorders, sex addiction, or depression. This community assists in each individual's unique recovery by preventing relapse, encouraging autonomy, providing support, increasing academic success, and offering a safe space on campus to process, grow, and reflect.

Every Wednesday and Thursday from 5:30-7 p.m., the Collegiate Recovery Community meets at Wellness & Prevention Services, located on the 1st floor of the Student Support Services Building (beside the post office).

Wednesday gatherings are for individuals in recovery and allies. Thursday gatherings are for individuals in recovery only.

If your student is struggling with an addiction or is in recovery, please encourage them to contact Wellness & Prevention Services at (828) 262-3148 to learn how we can help. Students can contact Ben Asma at for more information about the Collegiate Recovery Community.
