Mandated Substance Abuse Policy We use a brief, focused intervention method to decrease the likelihood of repeat high-risk behavior. Our object is to help students make less-risky choices in their substance use or to abstain from using altogether. Drug & Alcohol Abuse Policy When students violate an alcohol or drug policy at Regis University, very often they will be mandated to complete a substance abuse assessment and education consultation a staff member in the Office of Counseling & Personal Development. During these meetings, students will meet with a mental health professional and complete a series of questionnaires, review educational information related to their substance use, explore decision-making tendencies, and develop harm reduction behavioral strategies to decrease their risk in the future. In addition, students will complete an on-line psychoeducational/social norming program through 3rd Millenium Classrooms which includes the EChug and EToke assessment tools. The on-campus mandated substance abuse treatment option is free of charge to students. Repeat Offenders For those students who display repeated substance abuse behaviors and/or are deemed high risk by our mental health professional staff, off campus treatment will be recommended. If students are referred for off campus treatment, the costs of such treatment will be assumed by the student. Off Campus Treatment If a student has decided to complete their mandated substance abuse treatment off campus and/or is required to do so due to the time in the semester, non-compliance issues or severity of the abuse, the off campus provider will need to complete a Mandated Substance Abuse Treatment Form to document that the assessment and psychoeducation involved with this process has been appropriately addressed. For more information about this process, please call (303.458.3529) or email Dr. Chaney Givens.
