Mission & Vision

Fayetteville Technical Community College is proud to announce our new Collegiate Recovery Program that is committed to respecting diversity and recognizing the dignity and worth of all human beings. The Collegiate Recovery Program embraces the ethical principles of truth, virtue, justice, and love. The Program seeks to support the wellness of whole persons, by providing both recovery support services and opportunities for social engagement that supports people in recovery and promotes their well-being. Therefore, the Collegiate Recovery Program provides a variety of recovery pathways, to meet people where they are, and provide the support that they need.

Our vision is based on the belief that students should be able to pursue their educational goals while simultaneously staying focused on their own unique recovery needs. Each person’s journey is different, and our Collegiate Recovery Program seeks to cultivate an inclusive recovery community that supports each individual along their own unique journey, free from judgment and stigma.

A Comprehensive Multi-Campus Collegiate Recovery Program

Fayetteville Technical Community College and Methodist University are leading a comprehensive multi-campus Collegiate Recovery Program. A collegiate recovery program is a college or university program that works to provide a supportive environment on college campuses to support the decisions of students who choose to engage in a lifestyle of recovery. These programs are designed to support students who are pursuing educational opportunities, while also supporting them in their recovery. The concept of collegiate recovery is that no one should have to choose between recovery and college education.

The goal of our program is to transform two of our community’s institutions of higher learning into recovery-ready institutions. A recovery-ready institution is a place where individuals are empowered to ask for help, intervene with empathy when they notice someone else struggling with substance misuse, and a place that supports those in recovery by offering programming that promotes and supports everyone’s unique path to recovery.

Our multi-campus collegiate recovery program includes a partnership with Methodist University. This is a joint collegiate recovery program, which uses a design that embraces evidence-based practices and supports student’s decisions to engage in a lifestyle of recovery.

The program strives to provide students/staff and faculty with:

  • Drug/Alcohol Free Safe Space
  • Social Events
  • Peer Mentorship
  • Support
  • Inclusivity
  • Understanding
  • A place to belong

This multi-campus program serves students on both campuses and is open to the community.

Project Methods and Implementation

The collegiate recovery program offers both recovery support services and social activities that support recovery. Recovery support services include:

 It is important to recognize that there are multiple pathways to recovery and our CRP wants to make sure that there is an option for everyone.

Another huge part of sustaining recovery is having strong social support. The collegiate recovery program will offer regular opportunities for students to engage in social activities that support recovery. Collegiate Recovery will host regular social events and inclusive programming, such as gaming tournaments, film screenings, video games, reading circles, poetry slams, fitness groups, and more. Moreover, many of these activities will be open to students at both campuses, on non-conflicting days. That way students always have opportunities to engage in the CRP.

There is also a dedicated space on campus for the collegiate recovery program. The Fayetteville Technical Community College Center for Collegiate Recovery is a dedicated space in the Horace Sisk Building Room 630. This space will feature a comfortable lounge area for students in recovery to socialize and engage in fun activities, as well as private group rooms for recovery support services and support groups. These recovery activities and support services are managed by a North Carolina Certified Peer Support Specialist, and staff who are Recovery Allies.
