Intervention & Education

Substance Intervention Education


The Alcohol & Other Drug (AOD) process is designed to educate students on the potential consequences of hazardous drinking and substance use, as well as assess students behavior relative to use. In conjunction with Students’ Rights & Responsibilities, the AOD process involves a series of education modules and screening tools, so students are equipped with the information to stay safe and not simply penalized for AOD violations.
