The Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) was established in 2010 to provide individual, academic, social, and recovery supports for an admitted cohort of students in recovery. Participants are successful students and leaders in their respective disciplines who understand their need to participate in a recovery community that is set up to support academic and social success.

Mission: CORE, the Community of Recovery in Education at SOU, supports and promotes the academic success, recovery, and well-being of SOU students recovering from addiction by providing an authentic student-centered community and robust recovery support services and programming. 

Vision: Recovery for all SOU students who seek it.

All About CORE

JUNK: Addiction in Jackson County is a 27-minute documentary created by Kyle Simpson, a 24- year person in recovery who got clean and sober half-way through his college career at Southern Oregon University.  Now, with over 3 years of recovery, he examines opiate addiction in Jackson County, Oregon by interviewing key stakeholders in the community to question how this epidemic started and what is being done to address it. This short documentary began as his senior capstone project but has quickly found a receptive audience in Oregon and beyond.  It continues to be one effective tool in raising awareness for humane, reasonable and informed approaches to education, treatment and recovery for opioid addiction in the United States. Here is a resource guide to accompany the film.
