Drug and Alcohol Use Treatment


Substance Use Assessment 

When a student is charged with a second Code 105B or 106B violation, or first Code 105A or 106A violation, the student is referred for a substance use assessment (see Code of Student Conduct Handbook for details about code violations).

The Student Counseling Service (SCS) works in conjunction with the Office of Community Standards to provide these assessments to full-time Miami University students. The recommendations resulting from the substance use assessment are strictly confidential and not a part of the student's academic record. Students need to plan to spend 60-90 minutes, to complete the assessment. Students are charged $250.00 for the substance use assessment, which appears on the student’s bursar account. Alcohol/drug assessments do not have to be completed at SCS.

Students may contact SCS at 513-529-4634 for either scheduling a substance use assessment or to get a list of private community practioners and drug and alcohol treatment facilities. 

Once an appointment is made, the student is expected to attend. If the student does not come to the appointment, she/he will be charged a $25.00 no-show fee and will not be permitted to reschedule their appointment with SCS and will be required to schedule their substance use assessment with a private community provider or drug and alcohol treatment facility.

Group Counseling 

Transformations Group: This group is for students contemplating making changes in their alcohol/drug use. In this psycho-educational group members examine their substance use and how it impacts their academics, relationships, personal goals. Students may be self referred to group, or referred by the court system, parents, or Miami University. Upon court approval, this group can be used to fulfill substance use education sanction. Any information disclosed in group about the misuse of legal or illegal substance use is strictly confidential.
