Alcohol, Tobacco & Other Drug Abuse Prevention Center

Towson University's Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug (ATOD) Prevention Center strives to create an environment conducive to academic success and wellness.

Substance Use and Social Justice  

Stories of recent murders and acts of violence towards people of color have shown a light on the persistent and devastating impacts of systemic racism in our country. At the ATOD Center we have been listening as people of color share their stories and recognize that as a nation, strategies used to address alcohol or drug misuse have created and increased health disparities.

We acknowledge that we have work to do as a Center to create more inclusive prevention and treatment resources, while taking action against systemic racism including removing barriers that prevent students from receiving services on campus. We stand with all of our students of color and promise to continue to engage in anti-racist work.


The ATOD Prevention Center is rooted in the understanding that the campus is a complex community that influences the behavior of students, faculty/staff, and families. With a harm reduction approach, we provide education to the campus community to empower students to make informed decisions about substances during their time at Towson University. The ATOD Prevention Center is comprised of treatment, prevention, recovery, and peer education services. 

The ATOD Prevention Center is proud to sponsor and mentor Tigers in Recovery: A collegiate recovery program. This program is designed to support TU students that are in or seeking recovery from substance abuse disorders.
