HCSW provides substance abuse services including individual counseling, screening/assessment, treatment, and consultation for substance use/abuse issues. Call 859-572-5650 to schedule a brief screen. 

Sometimes students may report having substance dependence issues that require more intensive counseling services than those offered at HCSW. If needed students will be referred to community treatment programs that provide specialized services.
