Resources and Programs
Each campus has developed a process to prevent the use of illicit drugs and abuse of alcohol by students and employees. The programs include the distribution of informational materials, educational programs, referrals and college disciplinary actions. Students with alcohol or drug-related problems are encouraged to contact the campus counseling office for referrals to private and community agencies. Employees with alcohol or drug-related problems are encouraged to contact the human resource office for information and referral to the district employee assistance program.
If you are concerned with a drinking problem, wish to learn more about Alcoholics Anonymous or want to find A.A. near you, we can help you.
