The Office of Alcohol & Other Drug Services (AODS), a unit within the Department of Health Promotion & Education, is a multidimensional resource for students - and for faculty, staff, and members of the larger Harvard University community* who may have concerns about students - offering a wide range of programs and services aimed at reducing the negative consequences associated with heavy, episodic drinking and substance abuse through prevention, education, intervention, policy development and coordination with treatment providers. AODS collaborates with students and staff throughout the University to create a comprehensive substance abuse prevention program focused on the health and safety of Harvard students.
