Substance Abuse Counseling Services
Emerson Counseling and Psychological Services (ECAPS)?provides options for students interested in developing an understanding of the impact of substance use on their lives and the lives of those around them.
Students can benefit from the following services to explore and potentially change their current substance use patterns and/or gain a better understanding of addiction:
- Short-term individual counseling
- Substance use assessment and screening
- Psychoeducational and support groups (for students in recovery or with a parent/family member suffering from addiction)
- Referrals to off-campus providers and treatment programs when a higher level of care is needed
- Consultation, outreach, and training to the larger Emerson community
ECAPS clinician sometimes work with students to complete mandated assessments after they receive and alcohol or other drug citation. Students would be informed of this?mandate?by Residence Life or the Office of Community Standards and Student Conduct. These educational consultations provide students with the opportunity to speak with a?counselor in order to explore the student’s current and past substance use patterns, family history of substance abuse problems, and other factors that may affect the student’s risk of developing a substance use disorder. Every student referred for a mandate will meet with a?counselor, complete a brief assessment, and discuss treatment recommendations when appropriate. These meetings are focused on the student's needs and harm reduction, rather than a form of punishment.
In line with all counseling services at ECAPS, we care about protecting your privacy and believe that substance abuse counseling is most effective when you feel comfortable speaking openly and honestly. Under ordinary circumstances, no one outside ECAPS will be given any information—even the fact that you have been seen here—without your written consent. If a student is required to complete a mandated assessment, they can sign a Release of Information form to allow us?to notify the referral source of completion. The only information shared is whether the student completed the program by the required date.
