Alcohol and Substance Use
Alcohol and Substance Use in College
What about counseling?
Counselors with Counseling Services can assist students who wish to reduce their substance or alcohol use. The goals and discussion topics in counseling are up to the student, and counseling is voluntary. In accordance with our Confidentiality Policy, counselors do not have a duty to report substance use. Since counseling while under the influence of alcohol or other substances may not be effective, counselors may ask students to reschedule appointments if they arrive to Counseling Services and are not sober.
