Southeastern Louisiana University is offering a new support system for students recovering from an addiction this semester.
Lion Up Recovery is designed to help students maintain their recovery and refocus on academics.
Students who voluntarily enter the program will be required to attend seminars on recovery and attend support meetings.
Southeastern's program is open to students dealing with all kinds of addictions, including drugs, alcohol, sex, pornography, and eating disorders but stress the system is not designed to replace professional or medical treatment.
