In the fall of 2017, the Bruce Donovan Program for Recovery and Substance-Free Initiatives opened a substance-free program house using an existing Residential Life facility at 219 Bowen Street. The house is 17-bed community for students who are committed to a substance-free lifestyle and who identify as substance-free.
Students apply to live in the house for a variety of reason. Some are in recovery from substance use disorders, some are substance-free for health or religious reasons and some have addiction in their family and do not want to be around substance use. The house is a safe community for them with weekly house meals, special events and workshops.
