12 Step Recovery

Alcoholics Anonymous is a twelve-step program that offers a process of recovery from alcoholism. USC provides a home to twelve-step groups in the University Religious Center (URC). There are several AA and other twelve-step program meetings held each week, and they provide a solution to anyone who is curious, baffled, desperate, or hopeless regarding their drinking or substance abuse. The meetings are open to the public but provide an anonymous environment in which people can turn their lives around.

Monday – Thursday, 6:00 – 7:00 pm in URC 102

Sundays, 7:30-8:30 pm in URC 102.


The Haven provides on-campus care and support for USC students struggling with mental health and substance use disorders so they can remain engaged in a successful and safe college experience.
