Substance Abuse and Violence Education Center


Alcohold and Other Drugs

La Salle’s Substance Abuse and Violence Education Center (SAVE) supports students in accomplishing their educational goals by helping them resolve concerns associated with alcohol and/or other drug use. In addition, the SAVE Center houses our Title IX Advocate Educator who is the institutions key resource for support and advocacy to students who have experienced sexual assault, sexual harassment or other gender-based or sex-based harassment or violence.

The staff at the SAVE Center work to educate all of our students to the dangers associated with college life and provide support for those in need. Together, students and the SAVE Center staff develop a plan that, when followed, reduces the risk and increases the probability of improving academic and social adjustment at La Salle.
