Substance Use Risk Reduction

While many students at Notre Dame choose not to drink, and many more choose to drink responsibly, McWell recognizes the significant impact alcohol use can have on the well-being of our campus community.  Because of this, substance use risk reduction strategies are an important way McWell is working to keep our campus healthy and safe.  

The McDonald Center for Student Well-Being provides a variety of opportunities to students to guide them as they make choices around alcohol use. We utilize a non-judgmental, harm reduction approach to allow students to evaluate their current drinking behaviors and identify strategies to decrease any potential risks. 

Students have the opportunity to visit McWell for a one-on-one customized Alcohol Education session, or are invited to take advantage of an online web survey for personalized feedback regarding drinking behaviors.
