The help and knowledge I get are like nothing I have received from any other program. The staff are terrific, knowledgeable, and they care about my future success. I honestly would recommend this program to anyone who would want to better themselves.

What I like best about CREW is the patience, encouragement, and the help in whatever it is you may need or have to do, and working with your beliefs.

What can CREW do for you?

  • Student Evaluations: Students can get a one-on-one evaluation with a CREW staff member to evaluate their alcohol and drug use. Based on the results, we’ll provide feedback and recommendations for additional services as needed.
  • Counseling: Juggling the responsibilities and stressors of college life can be challenging. Sometimes a student may turn to misusing alcohol or drugs to manage those, and it can make matters worse. CREW offers free, confidential counseling to talk through those challenges and develop skills to manage them in the future.
  • Education Classes: This range of class offerings is designed for students whose behaviors may indicate a developing problem. Using a mix of the most recent research, education, and experience, these classes act as an early intervention for students at risk, while providing actions and steps for better decisions.
  • Wellness/Recovery Coaching: Through one-on-one meetings with a certified Coach (who is a peer), students learn to better manage the challenges that come with college living.
  • Peer-Led Support Groups: These are informal gatherings of students who share experiences and effective strategies with one another, including the ups and the downs, what is working, and what is not.
