Our Alcohol, Nicotine, and Other Drug (ANOD) team is comprised of Nancy Bushinsky, MSW, LICSW and Tess Kucera, MPH, CHES. 

We understand how college life, independence, social connection, stress, beliefs and brain development (to name a few!) are powerful influencers on your choices during this time in your life.

Are you interested in…

  • Making choices that reflect your values?
  • Learning skills to reduce your risks for harm?
  • Creating a plan and timeline to reduce use or quit altogether?
  • Support to make behavior changes that serve your goals?
  • Acquiring the latest research-based knowledge?
  • Resources to support or enhance your recovery?
  • Evaluating your use as it relates to various aspects of your well-being?
  • Referrals to community resources for treatment?
  • Information on how to help a friend or family member?

We provide a safe, relaxed and confidential space for you to explore your relationship with alcohol, nicotine, cannabis, and other drugs.
