Substance Abuse and Violence Education Support
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 abuse treatment or court ordered substance abuse counseling/education.
