Recovery Rising


How can students who are in recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction, interested in recovery, or want to support someone in recovery become involved in a thriving community? Join Recovery Rising, ASU’s Collegiate Recovery Program!

Recovery Rising aims to connect students through events, open roundtable discussions, and campus AA meetings.

Recovery Rising takes action to:

  • Increase visibility of the recovery lifestyle at ASU.
  • Connect ASU students in recovery with each other for social events, education, community service, support and meetings.
  • Educate and support our ASU community to better understand recovery and how to support students in recovery.
  • Provide opportunities for students in recovery across ASU programs and services.

Steps to get involved:

  • Sign up for Recovery Rising’s Facebook Group to stay in the know about meetings, activities and social events – just for people in recovery and allies.
    • This is a closed group. You will need to ask the administrators to make you a member.
  • Email us to sign up for our monthly newsletter or to get Recovery Rising gear and wear/use it proudly
  • Participate in community service activities hosted through Recovery Rising.
  • Volunteer to help plan and facilitate activities.
  • Bring a friend.
  • Check out the resources available on the ASU Community Link.

Students in recovery are:

  • Thriving
