Students can receive free, confidential counseling in a safe, secure setting in order to explore issues around alcohol and other mood-altering substances.
Individual counseling topics include:
- binge drinking
- alcohol misuse and abuse
- substance use
- understanding BAC and other pertinent informative questions
- family substance use issues
- supporting friends who have alcohol and/or substance use issues
Students referred to Shaw Wellness through the disciplinary system for alcohol and other drug violations participate in educational sanctioned appointments. These appointments include:
Alcohol.edu — a highly interactive and personalized online program that allows students to reflect on and consider changing their drinking.
AOD Educational Group — a 90-minute group experience that encourages low to moderate-risk students to change their alcohol and/or drug use.
BASICS or CASICS — Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS) or Cannabis Screening and Intervention for College Students (CASICS), brief motivational interventions to reduce problem drinking and usage.
Evaluation — Three to four sessions reviewing the student’s substance use, legal history, and impact on daily functioning. Following interviews, full report with recommendations is provided.
A variety of confidential weekly support groups explore issues and challenges related to alcohol and substance use with the AOD counselor in a comfortable setting. Schedule a pre-group session with the AOD counselor to talk more about joining a group — whether you are recovering or have family members who struggle with substance abuse.
