Alcohol and Other Drug Use
Do you know how much the college student drinks? How can you tell when you’ve had too much?
Health Iowa provides consultations on alcohol and other drug use. Confidential consultations are available with our substance abuse counselor for any questions or issues you may be having or experiencing. For general questions on how to drink safer and decrease the negative consequences from drinking (i.e. hangovers, drunk driving, etc.) you can also meet with one of our Health Educators at the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center.
Costs: General consults are free for students enrolled in 5 or more semester hours. Consultations requiring a substance use evaluation will incur some costs, unless self-referred.
