Harmless: An Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Discussion
Wednesdays | 12:25 p.m.–1:00 p.m. | 2nd floor, Administration building
Are you drinking or using drugs more than you want to? Could you use some strategies for change? Do you want to clean up your act before graduation? Are you trying to stay clean and sober? The Counseling Center invites you to join their weekly Harmless support group for students who are interested in examining or changing their current use of alcohol or other drugs or who seek support in maintaining recovery. This group offers a safe space for students to share their experiences as well as provide and receive support. To learn more, contact Andrea Winters at (914) 773-3710.
Not what you’re looking for? The Counseling Center offers a series of groups not limited to, but including: Groundwork, for those who have a significant person in their life who struggles with addiction; Understanding Self and Others, which addresses concerns related to relationships with others (including family, friends, and partners) and with oneself; and Creating Safety, a group for survivors of sexual assault.
And don’t forget to download their Just in Case app to put vital and potentially life-saving mental health information at your fingertips.
