Wildcats Anonymous began as a joint project between Campus Health's CAPS and ASUA's Student Health Advocacy Committee with a simple goal: to help students struggling with drug and alcohol abuse. In September 2015, we received the Transforming Youth Recovery Grant, a grant designed to help recovery programs start. That's exactly what it did, and, in December 2015 we had our first AA meeting on campus. The summer of 2016, we received the Governor's Office Grant for Collegiate Recovery, allowing us to have enough money to begin funding activities for our participants. In January of 2017, that grant was renewed for two years and gave us enough funding to begin an extensive marketing campaign and offer our first Spring Break Trip. In the Fall of 2017, we opened up our volunteering program for allies. Currently, we have two main goals: to obtain a relaxed, 24 hour, drug and alcohol free space for our participants and to start a sober housing program on campus.
We strive to create a safe, respectful and healthy community for UA students and others we serve through our commitment to high standards of care and our collaboration with community partners.
