We use these meetings as informational meetings about our group, what we do, and how you can get involved! Learn about the activities we host and academic opportunities available to our members.
The mission of LIFT is to support students interested in recovery from addiction and substance misuse thrive during their college experience. LIFT views the process of recovery as "an individualized, intentional, dynamic, and relational process involving sustained efforts to improve wellness” (Recovery Science Research Collective, 2020). Students learn beneficial coping skills in an accountable recovery community where they can develop friendships with like-minded peers.
Pillars serve as the guiding ethical norm of our organization. LIFT is organized around the four pillars of Community, Scholarship, Resiliency, and Personal Accountability.
-Community is achieved through group meetings, activities, and service informed by the principals of recovery.
-Scholarship is achieved through professional and academic internships, research in addiction and recovery sciences, and academic advising.
-Resiliency is gained by members through overcoming challenges and setbacks often associated with addiction and substance use.
-Personal accountability is taught through cultivating a culture of honesty and autonomy.
