ECU Collegiate Recovery Community


The East Carolina University Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC), also known as ECU Recovery, is designed to provide educational opportunities, personal development, and social enhancement to students in recovery from mind-altering substances and to the allies that support their journey to a better self. The goal of ECU Recovery is to create a welcoming environment for all students of the University and to create a culture within the University that supports abstinence within a model of a recovery-based system of care. Simply put, East Carolina University finds value in every student and supports each student on an individualized level based on his/her needs.
