Next Steps

  • Each team member assists with treatment referrals across the team to ensure that students are appropriately connected to the appropriate resources.
  • The team meets regularly to develop care plans and recommendations tailored to each individual student’s needs.
  • We understand that at times, substance use disorder treatment may be of a longer duration or require a higher level of care than can be provided through our outpatient Student Health and Wellness services. We are dedicated to connecting students to the appropriate and most helpful resources to support their needs and can assist in referrals to providers in the local community and beyond.
