Alcohol And Drug Resources
The Panhellenic Executive Council does not support or encourage underage drinking or illegal drug use. However, we want everyone in our community to be aware of their rights and know that we are all looking out for them. We understand that college is difficult and many may rely on substances as a form of relief, but we encourage you to learn about the reality of alcohol and drug use.
If you have any further questions or comments please feel free to contact our VP of Health and Wellness, Sofia Sirianni, at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or our VP of Risk Management, Robin Schlesinger, at email@example.com
The Haven at College Park
The Haven provides on-campus care and support for college students struggling with mental health and substance use disorders, so they can remain engaged in a successful and safe college experience. The Haven’s goal is to keep students in college and to help those whose academic studies have been interrupted due to mental health and substance use disorders.
Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) are groups of people who understand the struggle of addiction, and together are fighting their individual battles with the support of others. You have the opportunity to choose a closed meeting, which is restricted to only people who are suffering from addiction. An open meeting is for those suffering from addiction as well as family members, friends, or other support systems. It may feel uncomfortable to go to a meeting for the first time, so it is recommended that you go with someone you trust to an open meeting first, before attending a closed meeting on your own.
The first link lists various locations for AA meetings in College Park, and you can refine the search to what type of group you are interested in being a part of (ie. open, closed, transgender, etc.).
Good Samaritan Law
The Maryland Good Samaritan Law states that if you are underage and under the influence of any substance, and you call 911 to help someone at risk of overdose, you cannot be prosecuted or arrested. This law was implemented to save lives and ensure more people call for help. For more information visit the website:
