Southeastern Louisiana University is home to the first and only collegiate recovery program in the state. Lion Up Recovery, officially recognized by the Association of Recovery in Higher Education, is a voluntary program to help students in recovery achieve their higher education goals. State higher education and local community leaders recently joined with members of the Lion Up Recovery Advisory Board and supporters of the program for a launch event on campus. The program offers students on-campus support groups, academic advising and counseling, accountability, and staff intervention, if needed. Also offered are leadership and civic engagement opportunities, sober tailgating for select Southeastern football games, studying and sober socials, service opportunities through recovery-oriented support groups, and participation with ARHE regional and national events.
