Prevention and Awareness


As part of its ongoing commitment to health and well-being, the College offers educational programs and resources through Counseling and Health Services. When possible, one of the first responses to an individual found abusing alcohol or drugs would be assistance in overcoming the problem.

Identification -- Individuals, whose behavior indicates that they may be abusing alcohol and/or drugs, will be challenged and the Asst. Dean of Students or the Assoc. VP for Student Affairs will take appropriate action.

College Assistance and Resources -- Alverno views alcohol and drug abuse and dependence as treatable. Although the College provides reasonable assistance in these matters, we look to individuals to make a significant commitment in addressing their issues. Interventions are confidential. The College provides Alcohol/Drug education programs and individual assistance through Counseling and Health Services.
