The following programs are available to provide assistance to students who need them.
Counseling Services offers a range of professional services for students needing assistance. Counseling services are free and available to all current or prospective students. Personal counseling services are brief in nature, and a student must be currently enrolled at Madison College in order to take advantage of this specific service. If we determine that your counseling needs require resources or competencies beyond what we can provide, we will assist with a referral to an appropriate and affordable community-based mental health provider.
Alcohol and Drug Abuse (AODA) Prevention Program
A student in need of assistance to work through alcohol and drug abuse issues is encouraged to contact the AODA specialist. Conscientious efforts to seek such help shall not jeopardize any student’s enrollment and will not be noted in the student’s educational record. Any assistance provided can be done anonymously and is kept completely confidential within legal guidelines. If needed, this could include referral to agencies providing AODA treatment.
