We partner with college campuses across the nation to prevent alcohol and drug misuse among students and help advocate for students in recovery.


The Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Drug Misuse Prevention and Recovery provides colleges and universities the tools and resources to launch alcohol and drug misuse prevention and recovery programs on their campuses. The website offers resources for college students and their families, as college is an important time of transition for over 21 million young adults every year.


Who We Are

The Higher Education Center works to contribute to student success nationally by achieving a measurable reduction in alcohol and drug misuse on America’s campuses and promoting recovery efforts.
