Understanding Your Relationship with Alcohol and other Drugs
College students are all too familiar with stress from managing academic demands, personal and financial responsibilties, and if there's time, attempting to have a social life. So for this reason we focus on wellness as a key factor in prioritizing your time. We all need a certain optimal level of "stress" to be motivated, however, when stress piles on we might turn to a quick fix such as using alcohol or other drugs to alleviate the pressures of the day. If you are relying on alcohol and other drugs to cope and it is becoming a problem, then visit the Alcohol & Other Drugs Counseling page for more information.
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
(MCS) often results from overexposure to chemicals over a long period of time. A person with MCS can become overly sensitive to chemicals found in everyday environments. Though the reactions vary from person to person, the common reactions are nausea, lightheadedness, and respiratory distress. The Counseling & Psychological Services wants to be sensitive to those who report MCM/EI and suggests voluntarily maintaining environments free of chemical-based scented products.
