Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Office of Substance Education to create an environment that promotes academic success and healthy lifestyles through comprehensive programming aimed to prevent and reduce the negative consequences from alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use. We strive to assist students, faculty, and staff in the adoption of a healthy lifestyle by providing individuals and groups with information, education and resources.

***This screening test is not a substitute for an evaluation by a trained professional but it can help you learn if your symptoms are consistent with alcohol abuse.***

After you complete the screening you can print your results and take them to a counselor at the R.N. Ellington Health and Counseling Center, which is located on campus between the Moseley and Loy Centers. Call the Counseling Center at (336) 278-7280 to make an appointment.
