UVA Collegiate Recovery Program

The UVA Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) works to ensure that students, faculty, staff, and alumni do not have to choose between their recovery and a world-class academic, employee, and alumni experience.

UVA is working toward a recovery-ready Grounds, a place where both our members and Recovery Allies:

  • Are comfortable asking for help
  • Intervene with empathy when someone is struggling with alcohol or other drug use
  • Are knowledgable about UVA-specific resources
  • Respect recovery by offering encouragement and celebrating success

UVA’s CRP accomplishes this through a variety of evidence-informed initiatives, including a confidential support and social group called Hoos in Recovery (HiR), accessibility support inside and outside of the classroom, a recovery-focused seminar, and community Recovery Ally training.

“It was important for me to meet like-minded peers as I accomplished my lifelong dream of graduating from UVA. The group provided support, friendship, and leadership experience that helped me build a solid foundation for years to come. I value the refreshingly authentic camaraderie and I am grateful to have this during my undergraduate years.” - Anonymous Student, Class of 2020

If you have any questions about recovery support at UVA, or would like to talk one-on-one with a confidential resource, please contact our Recovery Support Coordinator Jen Cervi at or (434) 243-6407.
