How many Recovery Colleges exist?
We explored the characteristics and representativeness of Recovery College students (here). In 2021 we conducted a survey of all Recovery Colleges in England, in which we identified 88 colleges. The publicly-available contact details of the 68 Recovery Colleges in England which responded to our survey are listed here. We are currently conducting a global survey, and have identified over 200 colleges in approximately 28 countries.
How do Recovery Colleges work?
We developed a framework for collaborative data analysis (here). We used this framework to co-develop a model of mechanisms of action and outcomes for students attending Recovery Colleges (here), and also investigated mechanisms of action and outcomes at other levels (here).
