Are you questioning your own alcohol or drug use? College is a time of transition and opportunities to try new things. For some students this may mean engaging in substance use. ASAP offers confidential assessment and individual counseling to discuss your use.
Being a student and being in recovery can be a challenge, but it can also be an exciting and rewarding experience. Finding support is important, and ASAP offers the support of both individual and group counseling. We also have information about resources in the community.
If you grew up in a household with a parent who abused alcohol or drugs…you are not alone. According to a January, 2000 study that was released by the National Institute on Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse (NIAAA), one out of four people come from a family where one or both parents abuse alcohol or other drugs.
Although now in college, many students continue to deal with problems at home whether it is their own feelings of guilt or shame, concerns about siblings or the demands of a parent. ASAP is a safe confidential place to discuss these and other problems in either individual or group counseling.
Alcohol or drug use is frequently associated with depression, anxiety or suicide. It is not always easy to identify another person's drug or alcohol problems. Furthermore as one progresses further into addiction the use may be increasingly hidden. Trying to support someone who is struggling to cope with an alcohol or drug problem can be confusing and exhausting. ASAP offers confidential counseling to discuss your concerns and explore options.
During the academic year, ASAP staff provide outreach and educational activities at events and venues throughout the campus. Contact us to request prevention materials, information or workshops.
