1. The Be Brave: CRC promotes a science-based understanding of addictive behavior. Addiction is understood as a persistent, compulsive dependence on a behavior or substance which often interferes with life responsibilities, such as work, relationships, or health.
2. The Be Brave: CRC supports the SMART Recovery 4-point model of recovery: (1) building and maintaining motivation, (2) coping with urges, (3) managing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, (4) living a balanced life.
3. The Be Brave: CRC aims to provide emotionally-, cognitively-, and physically-safe spaces and resources for students. While the Be Brave: CRC encourages balanced living and healthy behaviors, students are never shamed for substance/process misuse or addiction.
