Student Resources

During the closure of the Main campus the Office of Collegiate Recovery will continue offering various online services:

Mentoring- via phone and Zoom the office will continue to work one on one with the academic mentor and/or the Director. Much of our discussion focus on how students can continue moving forward with their recovery.

Peer Support group meetings via phone and Zoom will continue to provide group meetings for all members of the CCP recovery community. These weekly meetings allow those in recovery as well as those that wish to be allies come together to discuss various topics ranging from how they are adjusting in school to coping skills and managing anxiety while in recovery. The Office of Collegiate Recovery offers, via Zoom, three support group meetings a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays)

Referrals to off-campus community resources to help students with support outside of the CCP community. It can include providing students with referrals to treatment facilities. We will continue working with CBH and DBHIDS (City Health Department agencies) in understanding how we can best support students regarding treatment facilities.

Sober Grid

The office also encourages the use of “Sober Grid” which is an interactive application that students may use to further connect with other CCP students in recovery through the group "CCP-Philly Recovery". If students can’t attend meetings, they are able to exchange ideas and keep in touch with one another through this recovery platform.   

Off-campus efforts

When possible, our “outside the college” efforts will be to meet with the City of Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbilities Services (DBHIDS) and community-based agencies to plan and/or provide information workshops and continue establishing protocols to facilitate new student referrals to the college. Most summer meetings will be via Zoom or other electronic devices.
