Alcohol and Other Drug Awareness
Counseling Services for Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Concerns
The Iona College Counseling Center provides assessment, education, and treatment services for students whose alcohol and/or drug use is affecting their college lives. At times, students may be referred for formal drug and alcohol evaluations if they are found to be in violation of the Student Code of Conduct policies related to alcohol and other drugs. Students attending counseling for AOD concerns have the opportunity to: examine the factors which contribute to their alcohol and other drug use, develop a plan to adopt healthier behaviors, and obtain support in a non-judgmental setting.
Students concerned about their AOD use, those in recovery looking for support, or those concerned about the use of a loved one or peer, should contact the AOD Coordinator at (914) 633-2038. Counseling provided by the Counseling Center is confidential. No information shared by the student is released without written consent.
