SUBSTANCE ABUSE: ASSESSMENT & INTERVENTION
Are you concerned that your child may have a problem with drugs or alcohol?
There are several agencies (both non-profit and private) that will provide a confidential consultation and assessment for you and your child. After a private interview, they will offer you feedback and provide you with several options & referrals to an appropriate level of care – if needed.
It will be your decision as a family whether or not to accept referrals or recommendations. You will be educated as to your options.
You may choose whether or not to share information with the Student Assistance Counselor or Bridge Counselors (see above). If you do include any of us, all information will be confidential. We hope that you do. We are here to offer help and support.
