Sanctioned Services

Most students receiving services from the RU Aware program have been mandated by Radford University's Office of Student Standards and Conduct due to a violation of the University's alcohol and/or other drug use policies. Students can participate in the RU Aware program on a voluntary basis. The program provides diagnostic and bio-psychosocial assessments, recommendations and referrals, basic alcohol and drug education, and risk reduction and decision making skills building. The RU Aware counselors also address co-morbid mental health and dependency issues to provide referrals to other campus and community resources as needed. The RU Aware program does not provide substance use/misuse treatment or court ordered substance use/misuse counseling/education.
