Alcohol & Other Drug Prevention and Intervention
Early identification and treatment of substance abuse is in the best interest of the university, students, and employees. Students and employees who have concerns with alcohol or other drug use are encouraged to contact the AODA Counselor for an assessment and/or a referral to counseling or treatment programs.
The University provides a variety of services for students and UW-Whitewater employees. It provides consultation, assessment, counseling and referral services. It provides and distributes guidelines and information about the university's alcohol and other drug use policy, state and federal laws and penalties for violation, and information about risks from misusing alcohol and other drugs. Voluntary contacts with the AODA Counselor remain strictly confidential. The UW-Whitewater AODA Counselor may be reached at the University Health & Counseling Services by calling (262) 472-1305. The Dean of Students Office has available videos, pamphlets and posters on a wide variety of issues related to alcohol and other drug use. Many items are free of charge and may be obtained by contacting the AODA Educator at 472-1305.
The Wisconsin Clearinghouse Prevention Resource Center provides a pamphlet with an on-point summary of numerous facilities that provide treatment for alcohol and drug addiction. To obtain this pamphlet detailing the statewide and local resources for drug and alcohol abuse treatment call 1-800-248-9244 or visit the website at http://uhs.wisc.edu/health-topics/alcohol-and-drugs/.
