Alcohol & Other Drugs Services


The CWC’s Alcohol and Other Drugs Services supports students who want to better understand the impact of substance use on their lives and the lives of those around them. It is our hope that these services will help students explore the source of their substance abuse, change their substance use patterns, and  gain assistance with maintaining their recovery from addiction.

AOD Groups

Success Not Excess

In this group you will discuss your use of alcohol and other drugs in a non-judgmental setting, develop an understanding of drugs of abuse and potential effects, identify warning signs for developing an addiction, and clarify your values.

Recovery Support

This group offers the opportunity to learn how to maintain recovery in college, where there are many potential obstacles and relapse triggers.  Facilitators will emphasize stress reduction and relapse prevention strategies and group members will have an opportunity to learn from the experience, strength, and hope of others.  Anyone at any stage in recovery is welcome.

Cross-Campus Collaborations

This is a two hour seminar put on by the University Police Department that covers the basics of alcohol/drug use. It highlights the consequences and responsibilities from both a legal and social perspective. This seminar includes a discussion of prescription drug use as well.
This is a one hour one-on-one appointment for students who have been referred by the Dean of Students Office as part of UF’s Medical Amnesty Policy. This program is designed to educate students regarding their behavior and choices that led them to need Medical Amnesty at UF.  During their appointment the Medical Amnesty Policy is explained, the student is given an Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT), and their individual drinking and substance use habits are reviewed with a counselor.
The Substance Abuse Screening and Intervention Program is to provide students with the opportunity to speak with a mental health counselor to explore the student’s current and past substance abuse, family history of substance abuse, and other factors that may affect their risk of developing a substance use disorder.
