Gauchos for Recovery (GFR), also housed under ADP, is a peer-driven UCSB program that aims to provide a safe, supportive, and engaging environment for students in recovery or seeking recovery from substance use disorders and addictive behaviors. We support students engaging in any recovery pathway they choose. Additionally, we support students who have been directly or indirectly affected by the substance use of friends or loved ones, and we work to create a recovery-ready campus community.

1. A community of supportive peers
2. Recovery-oriented meetings and events
3. Opportunities for leadership and service
4. A Recovery-friendly space
5. Peer and Professional Support
