Substance Abuse Assessment

The CCC staff provide alcohol assessment and education for cadets. These assessments can be voluntary or as a result of an alcohol related penalty. Each assessment is individualized and based on the particular cadet’s needs.

 Mandated: 
VMI has a strict zero-tolerance policy regarding alcohol. When a cadet receives an alcohol penalty (i.e. an A1 or A5) a substance abuse intake is the minimum requirement for compliance. Additional substance abuse services may be recommended by a licensed counselor. Cadets, if you receive an alcohol penalty, contact the Center for Cadet Counseling at (540) 464-7667 to schedule your substance abuse intake appointment.

Voluntary: 
The Center for Cadet Counseling also offers voluntary substance abuse services. Making changes prior to suffering from legal, academic, or VMI disciplinary consequences is strongly encouraged. To schedule a voluntary substance abuse assessment, contact our office at (540) 464-7667.


FREE ONLINE ASSESSMENT

The CCC offers online self assessments that are free and anonymous. You can answer the questions as yourself or to help you evaluate a student or roommate. After completing the assessment, you may want to discuss the results further. Visit http://www.vmi.edu/assessment to check out these resources. Please contact our office, 540-464-7667, to schedule an appointment. Note that these assessments are to help evaluate causes for concern and are not a diagnostic tool.
