Gordie Center

for Substance Abuse Prevention

Our Mission

The Gordie Center for Substance Abuse Prevention at the University of Virginia creates and disseminates evidence-informed programs and materials to decrease the negative consequences of hazardous drinking and illegal drug use among college students. We partner with students to promote peer intervention and education, particularly to reduce celebratory drinking, promote student-athlete health and wellness; and provide support for UVa students in recovery from substance abuse.  The Gordie Center provides conferences, training courses, workshops and consultation to create healthier campus communities.
