Alcohol and Other Drug Counseling

Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Counseling is an opportunity to explore your overall health and well being, in relation to personal use of alcohol/drugs, or in relation to someone else's use of alcohool/drugs. Counseling is a confidential, supportive place to discuss what is happening in your life, with a professional who will:

  • Be caring
  • Listen
  • Help you be objective
  • Provide helpful information
  • Be non-judgemental
  • Explore alternatives

AOD counseling can be a single session consultation, short term (2 to 6 sessions), or longer depending on the goals you want to accomplish. These sessions will help you address troubling experiences or feelings, or can be used to support changes you wish to make in your life. The demands of college life are stressful enough, and AOD counseling can give you a better chance to succeed academically and in your personal life.
