University of Tampa Recovery Community
The University of Tampa (UT) Collegiate Recovery Community (UTRC) is a part of LiveWell UT through Wellness Services located on the second floor of the Dickey Health and Wellness Center. This is a new program started in the fall of 2016 and is slowly evolving. University of Tampa Recovery Community is a safe space for UT students struggling with addiction and substance abuse to come together and support each other. It is modeled after the C.R.C (College Recovery Community) initially established at Texas Tech, and its primary purpose is to support recovering students by sharing the goals of providing support, preventing relapse and promoting academic performance. Students can engage with and seek support from students fighting the same battles as well as have access to supportive faculty and staff members on the UT campus. Students can utilize the second floor of the Wellness Center as needed, which consists of meeting space, student computers and break room area. Space is reserved on campus for weekly meetings. We do not currently offer dedicated housing through the UTRC but work closely with students, residence life staff and community partners to establish the best living arrangements possible for interested students. The advisor of this organization is Gina Firth, associate dean of wellness. In addition, there is a volunteer community advisor through Board Prep Recovery Center in Tampa.
