Jason Lindberg, 33, a second-year student at St. Cloud State University, is working on recovery from an alcohol addiction.
He lives off-campus and says that when he sees the "Thirsty Thursday and "Wet Wednesdays" or other promotions encouraging drinking, it's "frustrating."
It's part of a trend of schools realizing they should provide resources for students with substance abuse problems, says Matt Russell, an associate director at Texas Tech's College for the Study of Addiction and Recovery.
Texas Tech, which started its recovery program more than 20 years ago, has literally written the book on starting such programs, recently publishing Substance Abuse Recovery in College.
