Tulane University offers a wide variety of services that are sensitive to the challenges that university students face regarding alcohol and other drug use. We provide services for students who want to learn more about their own use of alcohol and other drugs, reduce or eliminate their use, or are worried about a friend or family member's use or dependency. In addition, the Tulane and the New Orleans community are home to many self-help groups and treatment facilities.
The internet has an abundance of resources about alcohol and other drugs. Remember, it's not always easy to tell which information sources are reliable. Here's a good place to start.
We provide a range of programs that address substance use among Tulane students. The aim of our substance abuse prevention programming is to increase self-protective factors and decrease negative consequences related to substance use, increase knowledge related to perceptions of substance use on campus and how they compare to actual use, and promote healthy and safe behaviors that foster overall well-being.
