Abstract

There is a significant need for eating disorder support on college campuses. Collegiate recovery programs (CRPs) are providing specialized support for students in recovery from substance use disorders (SUDs) but struggle to support students with eating disorders, despite the high co-occurring rates of SUDs and eating disorders. This is a brief report describing Texas Tech University’s experience in delivering eating disorder support in their CRP, outlining the challenges they have recognized, and providing recommendations and resources for overcoming them.
