  • Receive invitations to recovery socials

Members are accepted into the group on a rolling basis and must be trained through Recovery Ally Training, located below.


Recovery Ally Training

UC San Diego's Collegiate Recovery Program aims to eliminate stigma, and works to engage individuals on how to become a Recovery Ally through an interactive presentation on recovery from addiction.

Once you complete the training, you will receive a sticker that designates your space as a supportive environment for individuals in recovery. 

The CRP is constantly striving to foster an environment where students in or seeking recovery feel accepted by their peers, are encouraged to share about their recovery, feel comfortable asking for help and are celebrated by the community. By becoming a Recovery Ally, you are declaring to students in or seeking recovery that you embody these ideals. 

Each training will cover:

  • High level overview of addiction and recovery
  • Addiction and recovery on campus
  • Recovery-friendly language
  • How to connect your students or peers to the CRP
  • Ways to get involved as a Recovery Ally

Who should take this training?

Everyone! Recovery Ally Training is strongly recommended for any faculty, staff member, student organization leader, or community member interested in being an Ally for the student(s) they engage with. This training will be led by Recovery Peer Support workers and/or the Collegiate Recovery Coordinator.

How do I sign up?

Please see the Calendar for open Recovery Ally Trainings. You can also request a Recovery Ally Training for your department or student organization.
