Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug Education

The Office of Health and Wellness Programs provides Berklee students with alcohol, tobacco, and other drug education, programming, and assessment. We also provide referral services to students as well as to staff, faculty, and parents who may have concerns about a student. The aim of our programs and services is to encourage healthy choices and responsible decision-making, and to reduce the negative consequences associated with disordered substance use, such as poor academic performance, high-risk sexual behavior, violence, health implications, and addiction. We provide supportive, confidential, and nonjudgmental services. We also provide programming and presentations to educate and raise awareness in the Berklee community.

Presentations and Training

We offer interactive and informative customized presentations for classes, student organizations and clubs, residence halls, and staff and/or faculty, as well as campus-wide programs. 

We also provide training for student leaders, such as resident assistants and orientation leaders, on how to respond if they are concerned about a peer’s usage, as well as skills for building and influencing campus culture and attitudes towards alcohol and drug use.
