Addiction and Recovery

Brown University is committed to the maintenance of a campus environment that supports all students in achieving their academic goals. To that end, the University dedicates resources to support students in recovery from addiction and substance use disorders and to assist all students who are negatively affected by their own or others' substance use.

The Dean of the College office and the division of Campus Life provide over-lapping services to students with substance use disorders, to develop campus policies regarding alcohol and other drugs, and to educate all members of the campus community about alcohol and drugs and their effects. For more information about available services, please contact Dean for Recovery and Substance-Free Student Initiatives, Shannon O'Neill in the Office of the Dean of the College. There is a student club called SoBear: Being Sober - Having Fun. You can find out more about their events on their facebook page here. The SoBear Activities Club gives students the opportunity to participate in fun social activities without the presence of alcohol or drugs or others who are under the influence of these substances.
