Alcohol & Drug Counseling

The Counseling Center offers many resources and programs to promote alcohol and drug awareness, as well as individualized counseling and support for CBU students.

If you feel you may be experiencing an alcohol or drug problem, we encourage you to contact the University Counseling Center located in the Thomas Center. The Director of Counseling is available for confidential consultation on a walk-in basis or by appointment. Confidentiality will not be violated unless authorized by the student or a threat to life occurs. The Director will be able to provide you with information and testing, or assist in making a referral to a local agency, treatment facility, or clinical professional.

The Director may be reached at (901) 321-3527.
