Collegiate Recovery Community


Recovery to Inspire, Share and Empower (R.I.S.E) is OHIO’s collegiate recovery community. It provides support and resources to students in recovery, 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 collegiate recovery community 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 an exciting sober environment for students to connect, engage and thrive. 


There are two open R.I.S.E. support meetings held each week during the academic year. Students have the opportunity to attend one or both meetings. Summer meetings are scheduled and determined by participation levels.
