Schedule an Appointment
Boston University students are eligible for free and confidential appointments with clinicians in Wellness & Prevention Services to explore their use of alcohol or other drugs. Our clinicians use a harm-reduction approach to help students reach their personal goals. Our expert staff also help students identify treatment needs and will connect them with appropriate resources and care as needed.
Please note that our services are not available for the purpose of completing a court-mandated or lawyer recommended assessment. Paperwork cannot be provided for this purpose.
We provide counseling in both English and Spanish (schedules permitting).
If you are looking to fulfill a Boston University sanction or judicial requirement, please refer to your judicial letter to determine which service you should schedule, either a Substance Use Assessment or the CHOICES Alcohol Education Class.
