About the Program

Our LION UP Collegiate Recovery Program is centrally located on the campus of Southeastern Louisiana University. Our University is located 45 miles east of Baton Rouge and 60 miles northwest of New Orleans, Louisiana.  Our program was founded in Fall of 2019. We host a suite in the Student Union Annex which contains two multipurpose rooms and an office (Meeting Space, Study Space, and Office Space). Our space is centrally located on campus. LION UP Recovery also hosts the office of the Assistant Director for AOD intervention and LION UP Recovery (full time).  We currently do not offer sober housing for our students. We currently host 1-15 students in recovery as well as provide support for those students who are sober curious.  We host a Collegiate Recovery program for members pursuing abstinence-based recovery who regularly participate in recovery protective programming. We also host multiple support groups for those who are sober curious. We offer the Lion Up Recovery Book Club, Refuge Recovery, Smart Recovery and Smart Recovery Family and Friends and Southeastern Recovery Night (All Recovery). All of our support groups are open to students no matter where they are in their recovery journey,  with the exception of our weekly Seminar hosted for students involved in our CRP.  Our program consists of a Collegiate Recovery Program for those with 6 months or recovery as well as an Introductory Collegiate Recovery Program with 6 months or less. Students are encouraged to apply to our program through the online form listed on our website.  LION UP Recovery also hosts fellowship through sober events, sober tailgating, participation with the ARHE Conference, Regional Conference and Camping Trip.

A Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) is a college or university-provided program that includes a supportive environment within the campus culture. CRPs reinforce the decision to engage in a lifestyle of recovery from addiction/substance use disorder. It is designed to provide an educational opportunity alongside recovery supports to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other.
