"The Georgia Tech Campus Recovery Program has helped me feel that the Georgia Tech campus is truly my home. Every time I meet at the CRP the stress from my day melts away and I am surrounded by friends and staff who have become my closest confidants. Georgia Tech had always been a great experience for me, but the CRP has made it even better."
