CEDU School Has AA Groups For Students With Drug Issues
Saul Rudman, Director of Admissions for CEDU School, reports they have been having AA groups for students with drug issues. They started
the groups about eight months ago, and students are eligible to participate after they have been on campus for several months. Most
of the groups are on campus and consist entirely of CEDU students, but older students can participate in off-campus groups which gives
them the perspective of hearing stories from adults who have had worse and longer stories than the students. This is also used to
help the involved students set up and be prepared for a ready made support group after graduation.
