Recovery and Sobriety

Support for Boston College students living substance free

At Boston College we have a variety of support services for students both in recovery and exploring ways to de-emphasize the role of drugs and alcohol in their lives. Services include:




Alcohol and Drug Education: Staff, clinical interns, and substance abuse specialists are available for confidential conversations and short term counseling.  Please email for more information.

University Counseling: University Counseling Services include individual counseling and psychotherapy, consultation, and self-help assistance. Visit their website for information on how to make an appointment.

AA Meeting: Boston College's 'Sober on the Heights' weekly AA meeting is located in Greycliff Hall, 2051 Commonwealth Avenue basement.  This meeting is open to both Boston College students and the public.  Meetings will be held every Thursday from 8:00-9:00 pm.

For more information please contact Nic Sperry, Recovery Housing Program Manager,


According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), from 1999 to 2009, the number of students age 18 to 24 seeking treatment for substance abuse more than doubled.*
