Substance abuse has become a serious issue for our community and nation. If you or someone you know is struggling with substance abuse, we offer services and support that can help.
The Substance Abuse Education Office provides free and confidential individual information sessions, assessments, referrals and support as well as campuswide educational programming, sponsored events and classroom guest lecturing. These services are augmented by partnerships with community prevention and treatment experts. Through these services, our office prepares the campus community with knowledge, skills and tools necessary for making educated choices regarding substance use.
In addition, we recognize the special needs of students in recovery and have established a Collegiate Recovery Center (CRC). Located in Student Union Room 208B, the center is staffed by a trained peer support specialist to inspire and encourage academic and social fulfillment. The CRC is closed for renovations and will re-open fall 2017! Call 410-777-2527 for information.
If you’re looking for like-minded friends who are making a real impact, SPEAR (Spreading Prevention and Awareness Resources) is an official Student Government Association club. This diverse group of students uses their collective experiences and evidence-based information to develop prevention programming. You even can become a nationally certified Peer Health Educator, a recognized credential that is a great addition to your résumé and a major step toward helping others in need! As a SPEAR club member this certification is provided to you free of charge.
