One of the most unique and valuable elements of the AIM House experience is our close affiliation with the CU Collegiate Recovery Center (CUCRC).
Many of our participants choose to begin or continue their education at the University of Colorado at Boulder, which ranks as one of the nation’s top public universities and is located just a short walk from both AIM House residences. The Collegiate Recovery Center, opened in 2013 and directed by AIM House co-founder Danny Conroy, provides a safe space and strong base of support to help students maintain a clean and sober lifestyle in college and beyond. With events ranging from regular 12-step and support-group meetings to a wide variety of social and recreational activities throughout the year, the CRC is a great way for participants to connect with other young people who are choosing to live substance-free.
Nearly two years after its launch, the vibrant CRC community continues to grow and provide new opportunities for students committed to sobriety. Starting this fall, CU will offer a campus housing option called the Community for Students in Recovery (CORE), with apartment-style units in a dedicated wing of a Williams Village residence hall.
