HPAC houses the university’s Alcohol and Other Drug Initiatives (AOD) where we provide trauma-informed alcohol and other drug interventions and prevention programming for the campus community.
HPAC & the AOD Initiatives team is committed to providing shame-free, reality-based drug education to the AU community. We commit to provide trauma-informed and student-centered advocacy meetings that consider the student as a whole being and never a singular issue. We understand that addiction is a disease influenced by both environment and biology. We believe in the thriving and recovery of our students and community.
Our Coordinator for Alcohol & Other Drug Interventions provides:
1-on-1 support for students in recovery, interested in recovery, or seeking to minimize or stop drug use
Referrals to on-campus resources and off-campus resources related to recovery and support
Smoking/ Vaping Cessation Planning
Substance misuse prevention training and guest lectures for classes, student organizations & clubs
Partnership with clubs/ student organizations focused on substance abuse prevention and recovery
