Mission Statement

Live Free is a student organization at UW-Madison that confronts addiction through education, outreach, and access to recovery resources.

The objective of Live Free is to offer an environment in which students can feel supported in progressing with their education when ready, and enjoying a healthy college experience like their peers, while simultaneously transforming their lives. In order to accomplish this, we focus on reducing stigma, isolation, and other challenging factors that prevent productive growth. By educating the campus community about substance use and other addictive behaviors, providing as many in-house resources as possible and focusing on the solution of recovery, we are dedicated to making UW-Madison a place where all students can thrive and live to their fullest potential.
