SUIP stands for Substance Use Intervention Program. This program aims to motivate students to reduce risky behaviors associated with substance use. We will provide you with a structured opportunity to assess your own risk, identify potential changes that could work for you, and help you reduce your risk for developing future problems. SUIP is non-judgemental and confidential.
SUIP is designed for any student who seeks to develop safety skills and become more knowledgeable about reducing harmful substance use & associated problems. Participation in SUIP is also designed to assist students who use substances heavily and are experiencing negative consequences as a result of their high-risk substance use.
There is no charge for a student who voluntarily attends SUIP.
The program consists of two 60-minute sessions held within two weeks of each other. The first session includes substance use education and screening. The second session provides personalized feedback about substance use, risks, protective factors, and consequences experienced, as well as norms clarification, ways to reduce future risks, and options to assist in making changes.
The safest thing you can do is not to use illegal substances, however, if you chose to use, consider taking measures to reduce harm and negative consequences.
