Substance Abuse Prevention

Substance Abuse Prevention

The Recovery Center offers comprehensive and confidential substance abuse prevention services for students and staff. Services include information, referral and individual and group counseling about issues which affect students, staff and their families. Support groups are available to support recovery or simply to gain information on a variety of issues including alcohol and other drug abuse, smoking cessation, eating issues, parenting, co-dependency, and related problems. The center suggests a wide variety of choices based on each individual's circumstances. The Center does not advocate any particular program of recovery or self-help.

The Recovery Center facilitates the formation of student-run support groups on topical issues such as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous. While these meetings are listed in the community as being open meetings, they are facilitated by Lane students and therefore are subject to change from term to term. They are not held during finals week and school breaks. All services are open to currently enrolled Lane Community College students (and their families) in credit, and Adult Basic and Secondary Education classes. There is no cost to students or their families. Most services are provided by professionally trained staff. Information and referral services are provided by trained volunteers and students.

All services provided are confidential. Information is not released without student permission, except upon court order. Office hours for fall, winter and spring terms are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The center is closed summer term.

Note: The college is closed on Fridays during summer term.
