About Us

Minneapolis College’s Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) is a program within the Division of Student Affairs, founded in 2017. The CRP is committed to supporting all students in recovery from substance use disorders and other behavioral concerns. We are here to help our students achieve academic and personal success.

Minneapolis College's Collegiate Recovery Program has been named by the Association of Recovery in Higher Education (ARHE) as the 100th collegiate program related to recovery in Higher Education. Among the nation's 1,462 community colleges, Minneapolis College has the 5th ARHE-recognized program (at a 2-year institution) aimed at supporting all students in recovery through interpersonal and cross-cultural communications.

The CRP is a collaborative effort between the University of Minnesota’s Boynton Health Clinic, Minneapolis College’s Addiction Counseling academic program, Student Affairs & Student Life and our Addiction Counseling Club.

The program is staffed by a full-time coordinator (Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor) who also supports Metro State’s CRP, Interns, student workers and Peer Recovery Navigators. We are supported by a strong diverse Community Advisory Council, a committed Staff and Faculty Leadership Team.
