Christopher Freeman is the community recovery supervisor for the Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC). He can be contacted at (609) 771 – 2134 or freemanc@tcnj.edu. We are seeking alumni who are interested in supporting the recovery of TCNJ students. The CRC has a Lion’s house which is a supportive community housing option exclusively for students in recovery. They will be living with a small group of students in a campus house and a house mentor. Counseling and support services are available on campus for these students as well as any other students who wish to change their drinking habits. CRC is dedicated to the student’s personal growth, sobriety, and academic excellence. CRC also hosts organized activities and events for all students wishing to have fun without alcohol and other drugs. http://www.recovery.pages.tcnj.edu/
