ALCOHOL AND OTHER DRUG CLASSES
STARTING MARCH 23, CLASSES WILL BE AVAILABLE ONLINE

Students who receive sanctions from Student Rights and Responsibilities or Housing may be referred to Wellness and Health Promotion Services for participation in Basic Alcohol and Controlled Substance Education or the Alcohol and Controlled Substance Intervention.

These programs are designed to help you reflect on your choices about alcohol or marijuana and to reduce your risk of being harmed by your own or someone else’s use. The programs offer an opportunity to reflect on the role of drinking and marijuana use in your social life, review the facts about how these substances work, identify common alcohol and marijuana-related risks and learn ways to keep yourself and your friends out of harm's way.*
