Recovery Resources for Students

Recovery Resources for Students

The college environment can be challenging for some students.  Many are forging new relationships, adjusting to diverse living arrangements, trying to balance class schedules, and socializing with their peers, which may or may not involve the use of alcohol and other drugs.  If you are a student who recently completed treatment or you are in recovery, how do you manage the normal adjustments to college, stay consistent with your recovery, and fare in an environment that may not be supportive of recovery? We're here to help. 

Campus Resources that you Can Access

Sober Flyers, an open Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) which is typically held on campus, has been postponed until further notice.  Please consider clicking here to see a schedule of AA meetings in the Dayton area. You may also contact the Center for Alcohol and Other Drugs Resources and Education at 937-229-1233 for further resources if needed. 

The Counseling Center, located on the first floor in Gosiger Hall, is where you may find support to discuss challenges that may be impeding your transition to college and academic success.  Counseling services may be used in conjunction with active participation in a program of recovery. Please click here for more information.

Campus Activities Available to Students

The Campus Activities Board (CAB) is a student-run programing board.  They work with the Center for Student Involvement to host programing for University of Dayton students (all of which are substance-free). Most of the events are free or involve a nominal fee. Please visit their website for more information.

Center for Alcohol and Other Drugs Resources and Education offers support, consultation services, and brief interventions.  While we do not offer residential or outpatient treatment services, but we can refer you to community resources that may help you plan your transition or that might assist you in maintaining your sobriety while at the University.  Also, you may access SAMSHA’s Treatment Locator service here.  The University of Dayton does not endorse any local treatment provider over another, we simply provide information.

If you have questions or would like to talk, please call our office at 937.229.1233 and ask to speak with one of our Licensed Counselors.  We are here to support you and want you to be successful!
