Substance-Free Community

Substance-Free Collegiate Communities are supportive environments designed to help students in their decision to live substance free. Our substance-free collegiate community hosts meetings and social events throughout the school year to allow students to support each other.

Who Can Attend?

Boilermakers stick together. Any student that is interested in gaining support for their substance-free lifestyle is welcome to attend our group meetings. 

Schedule of Events

Due to COVID, many of our in-person events have been postponed. A 2021Fall schedule of events is being created and will be posted on this page in the summer.

How Can I Help?

You can help support students in recovery by participating in or hosting a Recovery Ally Training. This 60-minute training covers how to destigmatize substance use disorder in order to support others. You will learn about the resources available at Purdue and how to support a student in recovery. The training can be completed individually, or a wellness staff member can come present to your group. To request a training, please use the Wellness on Demand request form and choose "Trainings" when selecting a wellness topic.
