Drugs & Alcohol

Talk to someone about drugs or alcohol

Substance Use Intervention Services offers a safe, judgment-free space for drug and alcohol use and recovery support through the Collegiate Recovery Community. Call to make an appointment, or drop in during office hours.

Students also can request a meeting with a counselor to discuss their own substance use or concerns about a friend. Students who have been involved in minor alcohol-related incidents on campus may also be asked to meet with a counselor to reflect on their decisions as an alternative to participating in the campus judicial process.

Why come to SUIS?

  • To learn how to talk to a friend or family member if you are concerned about their substance use
  • To expand your toolkit for socializing in safer ways
  • To find strategies for handling roommate conflict around substance use
  • To explore your relationship with substances in a confidential, judgment-free environment

I felt very welcomed and not judged. My problems were understood. It felt like my well-being was truly cared about and that my issues regarding substance use were being truly heard.
