Alcohol and Other Drug Services

Alcohol and Other Drug Services are designed to offer specialized help to those who’s alcohol and other drug use has progressed beyond college experimentation. We help by:

  • Identifying those at-risk as early as possible
  • Helping stop the progression of substance-related problems from reaching a point where academic careers, health, relationships, social life, and legal status is jeopardized.

 

Through education, group therapy and brief individual counseling, and collaborating with outside providers for more intensive services, we help students halt the downward spiral and reclaim control of their lives.

 

If you’re interested in our services, please call (860-486-4705) to complete a brief phone assessment with one of our clinicians.
