12 Step Recovery

Alcoholics Anonymous is a 12-step program that offers a process of recovery from alcoholism. USC provides a home to 12-step groups in the University Religious Center (URC). There are several AA and other 12-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.

Meeting Days and Times

  • Monday-Thursday, 6:00-7:00 pm in URC 102
  • Sundays, 7:30-8:30 pm in URC 104


The Haven at College partners with USC to help students with mental health and substance use concerns continue with their academic and extracurricular activities while receiving Intensive Outpatient (IOP) treatment and recovery support on campus and online.

The Haven Outpatient Center:

The Haven at College’s clinical treatment model is a student-centric approach that integrates substance use disorder (SUD) and mental health treatment with on-campus and online peer to peer community engagement.

The Haven at College is a Tier-1 Aetna Student Health provider, and works with most other insurance carriers on an out-of-network basis. Students across California attend online through a HIPAA-compliant telehealth program. Students at USC and in the LA area attend sessions in-person, online, or a combination of both. Group sessions at the Haven are tailored to student needs, utilize evidence based practices and are offered through diverse clinical modalities. Talk to our Student Care team for more information!
