Collegiate Recovery Community

Group of people meets

Recovery to inspire, share and empower (R.I.S.E) is Ohio University's collegiate recovery community.

This group provides support and resources to students seeking recovery from alcohol and drug misuse or other addictive disorders, as well as students impacted by the addiction of a loved one or friend.  

The group was created to provide a safe and fun community where students can meet others and make new friends. R.I.S.E. has a designated space where students can drop in between classes, study, attend meetings and engage in meaningful fellowship. R.I.S.E. creates a sober environment for students to connect, engage and thrive.
