New center to fight drug abuse, promote prevention

A new Ohio State center, established with $2 million in funding from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, will serve as the nation’s premier alcohol and drug abuse prevention and recovery resource for colleges and universities. The Ohio State University Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention and Recovery (OSUHEC) will help college and community leaders develop, implement and evaluate programs and policies to address student alcohol and drug use. John Clapp, professor and associate dean for research in the College of Social Work, is OSUHEC’s director. The College of Social Work, College of Pharmacy, Office of Student Life, the Generation Rx Initiative and the Collegiate Recovery Community are collaborators on the project.
