Alcohol & Other Drug Resources

Information and resources to support healthy decisions around substance use

The Alcohol and Other Drug Resources website provides Northwestern students, parents, faculty, staff, and neighbors with a centralized hub for information, policies, programs, and services related to alcohol and other drugs. It represents the work of numerous campus partners who share the goal of supporting students in making responsible decisions about alcohol and other drugs, including low-risk use and non-use, to keep the Northwestern community safer and healthier.

In Focus

small outdoor gathering
Substances, Socialzing, and COVID
Substance use (alcohol, cannabis, and other drugs) impairs our judgment and ability to adhere to risk-mitigating behaviors like properly wearing a mask, washing our hands, and physically distancing ourselves from others. As end-of-year gatherings (like Dillo Day and Commencement) come into play, there may be more people gathering and increased substance use occurring in conjunction with those events. To keep the risk of transmitting COVID19 lower, it is imperative to both limit substance use and continue practicing preventive behaviors until everyone you interact with has been fully vaccinated.
