The goal of LIFT is to help students interested in recovery and sober living thrive during their college experience, provide a place for accountability within a healthy community, and a place to socialize and develop friendships with like-minded students.

Who Can Participate?

Anyone who is looking to build a sober community is invited! CRPs are made up of students in recovery and students who want to participate in a supportive environment while remaining sober. All registered FSU students are welcomed.

Where is LIFT Located?

Our office is in the Health & Wellness Center on the 4th floor inside of the CHAW office. We are always looking for input from students to help us grow. Please feel free to reach out to us, we would love your support and ideas.
