Fairfield University offers a variety of resources to address substance misuse issues. Orientation for first-year students includes presentations about substance misuse, healthy choices, and campus resources. Prior to coming to campus, first-year students are required to complete AlcoholEdu, an online alcohol education program.
Fairfield University provides educational classes, clinical assessments, and treatment modalities including, motivational interviewing, harm reduction, and 12-step approach.
The University hosts Alcoholics Anonymous and ACOA (Adult Children of Alcoholics) meetings on campus and offers individual and group counseling, as well as, psychiatric treatment.
For students in recovery, the University provides a Recovery Lounge to socialize and study. The lounge is a private area with a flat screen TV, library offerings, coffee, and snacks for the students. The University has two Recovery Houses, both unmarked and close to campus. This is the latest initiative in Fairfield University's efforts to support students in recovery.
