Collegiate Recovery Community

Collegiate Recovery Community facebook: AppstateCRC, Instagram: crc_appstate, Website:

Creating an environment in which all students of the Appalachian community can thrive and achieve optimal well-being.

A Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) offers support to students who are in recovery; wanting to be in recovery; or those who wish to support others on their recovery journey. This community assists in each individual's unique recovery by preventing relapse, encouraging autonomy, providing support, increasing academic success, and offering a safe space on campus to process, grow, and reflect.

The Appalachian CRC holds weekly recovery and community meetings. Individuals actively engaged in addictions recovery are welcome to attend, as well as individuals that seek to support those in addictions and/or compulsive behavior recovery (including but not limited to substance use, eating concerns, gambling, shopping, pornography, gaming, etc), and those who are curious about beginning their recovery journey. If you would like to meet with a CRC staff member about our services or for other inquiries, please contact Kayla Cheek to schedule an individual appointment.
