If you get a forced referral (FR) to the Substance Abuse
Program within Counseling Services for an alcohol and drug screening, follow
- Come to Counseling Services in the Health and Learning Center with a
copy of your referral form within five working days.
- Once you arrive at Counseling
Services, you will need to pay a $50 fee and complete an Alcohol
and Drug Inventory and an online survey.
- You will be given an appointment to
see a Substance Abuse Program counselor. It will be scheduled within one
week of your starting the counseling process.
- Your first meeting will involve
gathering information and providing details about the incident that generated
your referral. There will also be more questions about your alcohol and
drug use, family history, prior incidents, present stressors, etc.
- You will then be scheduled to return
to see the same Substance Abuse Counselor, generally within a week or two.
You will go over the Personal Assessment, Summary, Information, and Tips
(PASIT) form related specifically to your own situation.
You will receive a copy of this form and may
be referred to an appropriate class on or off campus or asked to return for
additional individual sessions. Classes on campus must be completed within a month. Time frames for completing off-campus
referrals will vary, but need to be completed within the time frame given.
- If you referred off campus, a "Notice of
Completion" will be sent to your referral source, informing him or
her of this referral and the time frame given for completion.
- If you are referred to an on-campus class, a "Notice of
Completion" will be sent to your referral source once you have
completed the class.
- Please note that if you fail to go to a
scheduled appointment or miss a class that you are scheduled to attend,
your referral source will be sent a "Notice of Non-Compliance" and
you will have 30 days to reinstate the FR process for $25. If you fail to
reinstate that process within 30 days, you must get a new referral and pay the
$50 origination fee again.
