Fall 2023 Support Groups

Success, Not Excess

With University Counseling Service and Student Wellness

Description: "Success, Not Excess" 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.

Tuesdays: 4:00-5:00pm at University Counseling Service, Westlawn
Thursdays: 5:30-6:30 at the IMU Recovery Room 208
