Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Assessment

An assessment provides an opportunity to meet one-on-one with a counselor at Student Health and Wellness, who will evaluate the nature of any problems a student is having with alcohol or drugs. The assessment gets the student involved through discussion of biological, psychological, and social factors affecting alcohol and other drug use and abuse. The counselor can then make recommendations for further treatment, if necessary and appropriate.

We also offer eCHECKUP TO GO

Personalized Treatment Plans

A personalized treatment plan for alcohol and other drugs may include individual or group counseling, or a combination of both. Appropriate referral to resources, either on-or-off campus, may be considered. Counselors will work collaboratively with students to identify their readiness to make changes in their alcohol and drug use. In addition, counselors will help students identify healthier coping strategies to replace the use of alcohol and drugs. Students and counselors work toward the goal of lowering health risks by disengaging from harmful behaviors. Group treatment can help students know that they are not alone in their struggles with alcohol and drug abuse. It is a setting for giving and receiving support and feedback about what skills and tools have been effective.  Group treatment may be located off-campus through programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Al-Anon.

AOD Assessments for Judicial Purposes

Student Health and Wellness may conduct AOD (Alcohol and Other Drug) assessments or may provide AOD counseling for the university student conduct system. Should a student need to document an AOD assessment, counseling, or other services for court-related purposes, our staff may provide the student with a list of appropriate referral options off-campus.
