What is RECOVERY?
“Recovery from substance dependence is a voluntarily maintained lifestyle characterized by sobriety, personal health, and citizenship.” –Betty Ford Institute Consensus Panel, 2007.
As of May 2017, Texas Christian University is an institutional member of the Association of Recovery in Higher Education (ARHE), representing our Collegiate Recovery Program. Read more about the ARHE here.

- Individual counseling sessions at the Counseling and Mental Health Center. For 1st time appointments (non-crisis), CMHC utilizes a walk-in clinic every business day from 10:00am-11:30am and from 1:00-3:00pm. Students are assigned to a CMHC counselor after they attend a session during the walk-in clinic hours.
- The TCU Peer Support Group is a weekly open meeting for TCU students, varying in age, major, and phase of recovery, to share their experience, strength, and hope. This group also hosts alcohol-free events, including football and baseball tailgates, throughout the fall and spring semesters.
