About the Program

The Southeastern Louisiana University Recovery program is located 45 miles east of Baton Rouge and 60 miles northwest of New Orleans.
Our CRP was founded in Spring 2019. We are located within the Division of Student Affairs and more specifically the University Counseling Center. Our program currently offers a recovery space that includes a large meeting area, a staff office, restrooms and
a kitchen area on North campus as well as recovery support services within our student union annex. We currently have a part-time program manager and a full-time coordinator. Our program is considered small size and is well-supported by the campus and surrounding community. The Southeastern Louisiana University Program provides several support groups per week, we also host a weekly seminar for our CRP and Introductory CRP. We offer local off campus 12 step meetings, as well as on campus Refuge Recovery and Smart Recovery.
We host recovery football tailgates, sober events and a Celebration of Recovery monthly all-recovery birthday/speaker meeting. In September we host Recovery Month events as well as Alcohol Awareness events in April. There are two levels of programming one for those with under 6 months recovery and the other program designed for those with 6 months or more of recovery. Newcomers are welcome to attend open recovery meetings, hang-out in our recovery space, attend our events and programs and are encouraged to explore recovery with us. There is a clear pathway to full membership for those who are not yet in stable recovery and opportunities for engagement for students who are new to recovery.
