Congratulations to the Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Drug Misuse Prevention and Recovery (HECAOD), which has been named an academic center at The Ohio State University. Ohio State’s University Senate approved the HECAOD’s proposal to be established as an official academic center in its January 21, 2016 meeting, following approval by the Council on Academic Affairs on October 21, 2015. Academic centers at the university are non-degree granting educational units engaged in research; instruction; or clinical, outreach or related service. The HECAOD serves as the premier alcohol and drug misuse prevention and recovery resource for colleges and universities across the nation. It is a collaboration among Ohio State’s College of Social Work, College of Pharmacy, Office of Student Life and Student Wellness Center, Generation Rx Initiative, and Collegiate Recovery Community. The HECAOD is funded by a $2 million grant from The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.
