alcohol and other substances

Students are encouraged to schedule confidential appointments to discuss any substance abuse issues whether personal, familial or any concerns regarding a friend. Assessment, counseling and referral services are available at Baird Health & Counseling Center. BHCC staff can also provide information on local self-help recovery groups and meeting times.

Substance abuse counselors are Master's level licensed clinicians that are able to provide counseling for substance abuse and are able to assess other related problems. Medication needs may be met by a nurse practitioner or by a psychiatrist. Students may coordinate ongoing care between college healthcare providers and their local healthcare provider, counselor or psychiatrist.

While individuality and privacy are respected, students are expected to obey federal, state, and local laws and to follow college policies for their own safety and well-being as well as that of our community. Our substance abuse counselors work closely with the director of Citizenship Education and with Residential Education staff.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact Baird Health & Counseling Center by phone at (603) 526-3621 or by email.
