What is a Collegiate Recovery Program?

A Collegiate Recovery Program provides a nurturing, affirming environment in which students recovering from addiction can find peer support as well as other recovery support services while attaining a college education. Students participating in this community have educational, academic, advisory, community building, and programmatic opportunities that support their decision to maintain their recovery as well as improve their academics and general life skills. Through this holistic approach to continuing care for recovering students, the Catamount Recovery Program helps to provide a normative college experience for students in recovery.

Mission and Vision

Our Mission is to offer students in recovery the opportunity to pursue academic success, personal growth, professional development, to have an active and fulfilling collegiate experience, and to prepare them to be vibrant leaders in the community.

Our vision is to shift the landscape of the college community to respect, value and cultivate a culture of long-term recovery as a model of wellness.
