Biennial Review

Linfield College Alcohol & Drug Policy and Programs 2014-2016 Biennial Review

The Drug Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA) was amended in 1989 to include institutions of higher education (IHE). In order to receive funds (or any other forms of financial assistance under any Federal program), DFSCA requires, and IHE to certify, that they have adopted and implemented an alcohol and other drug (AOD) prevention program in order to prevent “unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees.”

Linfield College is committed to maintaining an environment that supports the health and well-being of its community members, while discouraging the illicit use of drugs and alcohol. The College demonstrates this commitment through the continuous development of policies, programs, and services that support healthy lifestyles. The intent of this document is to meet the legal requirements of conducting a biennial review and summarize the various activities and programs that occurred on the Linfield College campus as they relate to drug and alcohol prevention.

Self Help Groups

AL-ANON (and AlAteen for younger members)
"Al-anon is a worldwide organization that offers a self-help recovery program for families and friends of alcoholics whether or not the alcoholic seeks help or even recognizes the existence of a drinking problem. Members give and receive
comfort and understanding through a mutual exchange of experiences, strength, and hope. Sharing of similar problems binds individuals and groups together in a bond that is protected by a policy of anonymity." (local)
