U Belong Where Everyone is Welcome

Boynton Health's Recovery on Campus, or Boynton Health's ROC, is a University of Minnesota student group that offers camaraderie and support to anybody who is questioning their relationship with drugs and alcohol.

Staying away from drugs and alcohol is not easy, especially around a big university. For those trying to maintain sobriety, it can be overwhelming. For those trying to have sober fun, it can feel impossible.

Boynton Health's ROC was built on the belief that we can’t stay sober by ourselves, and that we aren’t very much fun by ourselves either. So, why do it alone?

Boynton Health's ROC accepts and welcomes people with a wide range of substance use history. Whether you are an ex-heroin addict in 12-step recovery, a heavy drinker who is beginning to lose control, or a freshman who just had a terrible weekend of partying — we welcome you, no matter what happened to you, or where you come from.

Come hang with us, relax, reach out, and hopefully, we can find a common joy in sobriety.

Getting Social, Online and IRL
