It is Holy Family University's goal to support the healthy choices of its students related to alcohol/drug use.
The Counseling Center, in collaboration with Residence Life, offers education regarding Alcohol and Other Drugs to students, staff, and faculty. Students who are experiencing issues related to alcohol/drug use are encouraged to schedule a consultation/assessment with Counseling Services. These services are free and confidential. Referrals to outside agencies are available if ongoing treatment is needed for Alcohol or Other Drug Abuse/Dependence.
Students found in violation of Holy Family University's alcohol policy (found in the Student Handbook) are mandated to attend education in order to continue in their academic and/or athletic programs, and in some cases, to maintain their resident student status.
The University encourages students and other members of the University community to assist when help is needed. This is most important in medical emergencies due to alcohol and /or drug use. Students are expected to report medical emergencies due to alcohol or drug use. Students should not hesitate to seek help because of fear of disciplinary action. An individual who actively seeks help for an intoxicated or under the influence student will not, in most circumstances, be charged under the University Judicial Process for seeking help, as determined within the discretion of the University. A help seeker is defined as a person or persons, who actively seek help in an incident for fear or concern of someone's safety and or welfare.
