Alcohol & Substance Use

We offer programs and services aimed at reducing the negative consequences associated with heavy, episodic drinking and substance abuse through prevention, education, intervention, policy development and coordination with treatment providers. We collaborate with students and staff throughout the University to create a comprehensive substance abuse prevention program focused on the health and safety of Harvard students.


We support students as they navigate their personal choices around substance use and help the Harvard community to make informed choices through education, consultation, brief intervention, and referral. We use a risk-reduction approach aimed at mitigating the risks and consequences of excessive alcohol and substance use, rather than eliminating all use.
