Students

Alcohol and Drugs: Medical, Counseling, and Educational Services

The mission of our program is to create a campus environment that encourages respect and responsibility for self and others, and promotes safe and healthy behaviors and settings that reduce the harm associated with drinking and other drug use. Toward that end, we provide medical, counseling and education services for students.

Sometimes it is hard to know when someone's use and choices are out of control or a group's policies and practices are creating problems. The early signs may be subtle. Find out more here.

Tang Center offers these services to help.
