UTEP Collegiate Recovery Program
The University of Texas at El Paso is taking measures to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and faculty during the COVID-19 outbreak. On Tuesday, March 24th, the City of El Paso issued a shelter-at-home ordinance to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. All COVID-19 updates can be found at www.utep.edu/coronavirus.

I need help
There are many routes to recovery. Here is a list of resources for emergencies and crises, in- and out-patient treatment, and on-going recovery support.
The University of Texas at El Paso Collegiate Recovery Program (UTEP CRP) uses a multi-faceted approach to address recovery from alcohol, drug, and behavioral addictions. The program engages students who have been affected by addictions as well as students, staff, faculty, and community members who are allies to create a recovery-friendly campus at UTEP.
“With the guidance of the Collegiate Recovery Program, CASS, COBA, and the recovery advocates, I became a part of a campus community that encouraged me to succeed sober, on and off campus.”
