Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs
Drug or Substance Abuse?
Substance abuse is a widespread problem in our
society. An estimated 14.8 million Americans are currently illicit drug
users. †The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
gathers and reports statistics on alcohol, tobacco, and other drug issues that impact some†9.4 million people.
Chabot College Campus is dedicated to caring for its community's well-being
by promoting a culture of safety and educated, legal, low-risk choices about
alcohol and other drug use.††
For students seeking help for themselves or others with alcoholand other
substance use/abuse/dependence issues, there are free, confidential, and
compassionate†counseling services available on campus, as well as opportunities
to elicit information from professionals regarding off-campus treatment options
and support.† Often students simply wish to seek support in making lower-risk
choices than they have done previously, or education about the
effects of specific mood-altering chemicals.
Our Mental Health & Pscyhological Counselor/Interns†and Health†Educators
provide all of these resources, as well as confidential phone consultation
