Recovery Housing

A Community Supportive of Sobriety


What We Are

Boston College Recovery Housing is a residential community within the BC campus for students who have made a commitment to their long term recovery from addiction.

Through a structured and supportive environment, students can maintain sobriety while continuing to develop as individuals, thrive academically, and foster supportive relationships with others in recovery.

Our Mission

The mission of Boston College Recovery Housing is to provide a safe, supportive, substance free, and enriching environment for gifted students in recovery who wish to maintain long term sobriety, continue their education, develop supportive relationships, and to inspire others by carrying the mission of hope to those entering recovery.

Our Vision

The Boston College Recovery Housing program intentionally integrates a holistic understanding of addiction with Boston College’s formational mission into a community based residential collegiate recovery program.

The BCRH program is strongly routed in a 12-Step tradition, and is integrated with elements of Jesuit Spirituality.

The Bottom Line
