Physicians and counselors at University Health and Psychological Services (http://www.fresnostate.edu/health) will provide an assessment for a student and refer them for assistance. Assistance needed for alcohol and drug dependencies are referred to the Fresno New Connection (formerly the Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Council) at 559.248-1548. Other treatment programs may include: Alcoholics Anonymous at 559.221-6907, or Narcotics Anonymous at 559.255-5881.
Faculty and staff may contact the Employee Assistance Program, 559.278-4357, for confidential consultation regarding substance abuse or other personal problems, at no cost, to the employee or member of their immediate family. A careful assessment of the situation will be made and alternatives will be offered which are both appropriate and affordable.
For those who prefer to seek help on their own, there are community agencies available to address drug and alcohol problems. Most of the various drug and alcohol treatment programs offer no-cost assessments, and can be located in the Yellow Pages of the phone book under "Drug Abuse & Addiction Information & Treatment Centers".
