HYPER: Helping Young People Experience Recovery at UNLV
WHAT: Peer support group for UNLV students in any stage of recovery. Based upon 12-step & harm reduction principles.
NOT: A formal AA or NA meeting, professional counseling or a replacement for addiction treatment program.
WHY: College can be stressful & you may need help staying sober. You are not alone! We want to support each other to be successful in college & beyond.
WHEN/WHERE: Meetings are held weekly. See below for this semester’s meeting day/time. Drop-in times & speaker programs may also be available.
Helping Young People Experience Recovery at UNLV is designed to create a supportive environment where students in recovery from addictive disorders can continue long-term recovery, interact socially, excel academically, be of maximum service to the UNLV, and the local, state, and national community.
