Concerned about Someone’s Drinking or Drug Use?

Come to an Alcohol and Drug Information Session for Faculty and Staff

Wednesday, October 21
Noon to 1:00 PM
Waterman 427A

When does someone else’s substance abuse become our problem – and what can we do about it? How do we approach family members, friends or co-workers with our concerns? Navigating the boundaries – and taking care of ourselves – while trying to help a person we care about can be very difficult. You don’t have to figure it out on your own. Professional help and resources are available – on campus, online, and in the community.

This session will explore strategies for tackling these sensitive issues, and offer suggestions about where to turn for additional help and information. Individuals who attend will not be asked to identify the person(s) they are concerned about. Registration information will be kept confidential.

The Alcohol and Drug Information Session is offered through UVM’s WorkLife Services’ Employee Assistance Program. This seminar is presented free of charge to all interested faculty and staff. Advance registration is required for planning purposes.

Session Presenter Clare Evancie is an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Counselor at UVM. If you are unable to attend the session and have questions or concerns about this topic, you may call 656-2100 to schedule a private appointment. The EAP office is located at 466 South Prospect Street and offers free, confidential mental health counseling and referral services to all UVM employees.
