Recovery Resources

Congratulations on taking the first steps to sobriety.

The Alcohol and Drug Education Center is a valuable resource to help you maintain your recovery while you are a student at La Salle, as you are not alone in your recovery journey.   Please reach out to the staff at the AODEC to connect you with resources in the Philadelphia area.
