What is the Collegiate Recovery Community?

The Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) is a program designed to support students in or seeking recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. The CRC and its programs allow students to have an authentic college experience while maintaining their recovery. The CRC also has a designated lounge area conveniently located on campus in 097 Baker Hall that is available to members of the community.  The CRC serves as the main touch point for students in recovery who are either currently attending or plan on attending The Ohio State University by acting as a connector for the students and assisting them in utilizing resources on and off campus.
