Success, Not Excess Meeting

Next Date: Thursday, February 20, 5:30 PM
Location: 214, CRC, Iowa Memorial Union (IMU)

This group provides a safe and supportive space for UI students wanting to make or considering changes in their alcohol or other drug use. The group emphasizes success in academics, relationships, mental and physical health, and other goals through abstaining or reducing alcohol and other drug use.

The group operates from a “no pressure” approach by encouraging discussion of shared experiences and achieving success on campus by removing the barriers created by substance use.

In this group we will:

Learn alternative paths to have fun, socialize, and cope with stress outside of substance use.
Identify problems created by using and establish skills to avoid/prevent those problems.
Explore connections between our emotional experiences and our substance use.
Support each other as we work towards reducing harmful outcomes of excessive alcohol and other drug use and celebrate the successes that follow making changes.

This is not a treatment group and will not satisfy legal or other disciplinary mandates. This is a “drop-in” group with no attendance requirements. We ask students not attend the group under the influence.
