Recovery Rising


Students who are in recovery, or want to support someone in recovery, from alcohol and other drug misuse, eating disorders, self-harm, or traumatic experiences, can become involved in ASU’s thriving Collegiate Recovery community: Recovery Rising.

Recovery Rising actively encourages students to explore options in their community to attend recovery meetings, participate in campus supported events, and to best understand the resources available on and off campus. Campus supported events are open to all students and alumni in recovery. Below are the days/times for the scheduled meetings that will be occurring until further notice:

  • General Meeting
    • Thursdays at 12pm
  • All Recovery Meeting
    • Thursdays at 12:30pm
  • AA Meeting - Tempe
    • Wednesdays at 5:45pm

To access each of the upcoming recovery meetings please contact the Friends of Recovery Advisor for opportunities to join meetings.


Recovery Rising takes action to:

  • Increase the visibility of the recovery lifestyle at ASU.
  • Connect ASU students in recovery with Friends of Recovery 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.
  • Enhance access to ASU programs and services to students in recovery.
