Athens State University to Offer Drug and Alcohol Counseling

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Athens State University expands campus community counseling to include education and services on drug and alcohol issues. Two counselors from Quest Prevention Services funded through a grant from the Alabama State Department of Mental Health will be on campus weekly.

Counselors Michele Moore and Wendy Johnson have worked for the Mental Health Center of North Central Alabama for numerous years as the Prevention Coordinator and the Prevention Specialist, respectively. Through the program they deliver drug and alcohol prevention education to local groups, in one-on-one meetings, and to institutions and organizations in the area.

“These two counselors are joining with Lisa Philippart, our Counselor-in-Residence, to assist those in need and that is a good thing,” said Director of the Career Development Center and Counseling Services, Saralyn Mitchell. “We pride ourselves on supporting our students and this is one way we can assist those who need these types of services.”

The drug and alcohol counseling services will be available to Athens State students, faculty, and staff on Thursdays from 9 a.m. until noon in room S103D of Waters Hall. The counseling office may be reached by calling 256-233-8144.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
