Alcohol and Other Drugs


Alcohol & Other Substances

Alcohol & Other Drug programming at Prevention, Outreach, and Wellness Education Resource (POWER) uses a multi-dimensional approach to address alcohol and other drug misuse.  

  1. Education. Through the lens of health consciousness, an approach that increases awareness in the face of potential risks to one's health, we ensure that students obtain accurate information about responsible alcohol and drug use.  Our approach allows students to recognize unhealthy behaviors while providing a multitude of healthy alternatives.  
  2. Assessment. Assessment allows us to define the problem and determine how successful our current approaches to addressing the problem are helping to reduce high-risk alcohol and drug use. 
  3. Environmental Management. Through campus and statewide initiatives we are able to create a campus environment that emphasizes harm reduction through on-going policy review, campus-wide taskforces, and community engagement.
  4. Recovery. The Collegiate Recovery Community works to promote a healthy and supportive collegiate experience for students in recovery for substance use disorders and addictions, as well as help remove the stigma associated with recovery.  We recognize that substance dependence is a disease and there is no specific demographic that is immune.
