Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have recovery housing?
Although we don’t currently offer sober housing options on campus, we have members that are currently in living arrangements together and we have members that have live in sober living. Ask one of our members for more information on possible living arrangements with other sober roommates, or ask a staff member for more information about sober living. Information about sober living can also be found here. ARC has started working with Lynx Crossing, an Auraria campus dormitory, to provide sober living in the future. We will update our website and members as this progresses.
How do I get involved with ARC?
Feel free to drop by at one of our weekly recovery meetings or regularly occurring social events. We are a welcoming and inclusive group. Also, feel free to send us an email. We are happy to meet with you individually before a meeting/event to answer questions you may have and to accompany you to your first meeting/event.
What can I expect from attending All Recovery Meetings?
You will find a safe space to share, listen and connect with others who share the recovery lifestyle. All pathways to recovery are welcome and discussed. Our connection to each other is imperative so we place importance on engaging in in-depth, vulnerable, and solution focused discussion. The group norms and expectations are clearly explained at the beginning of the recovery meeting; if you have ever attended therapy, treatment, or support groups you will feel right at home.
