The Substance Abuse and Violence Prevention (SAVP) program, an outreach service of the SUNY Fredonia Counseling Center, strives to create a campus culture in which members make informed and responsible decisions regarding their personal and community health. SAVP works to reduce the incidence, prevalence, and severity of substance abuse and interpersonal violence related problems among SUNY Fredonia students.
This comprehensive program coordinates initiatives; facilitates collaboration; provides training, advocacy, and intervention services; and educational opportunities in the following areas:
SAVP coordinates Campus Education Awareness Support and Effect (CEASE) the Violence Prevention - Victim Services program. The CEASE program provides on-campus advocacy for SUNY Fredonia students that are survivors of interpersonal violence. We can answer questions, be someone to talk to, offer emotional support, and provide referrals. You can make an appointment with the CEASE office by stopping by the Counseling Center, LoGrasso Hall, calling us at (716) 673-3424, or emailing the CEASE coordinator at Julie.Bezek@fredonia.edu.
