The Barnes Center at The Arch Substance Use Resources

The Options Education Group is a single session group that focuses on the impact of substance use on physiology, perception and decision making. Additionally, the group discusses the progression of use and ways to reduce the risk of substance use. The group focuses on the effects and use of alcohol and marijuana, however other substances are discussed as relevant.

Participating in the Options Education Group

Participation may be a self-referral or the outcome of an Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities referral. Groups are confidential, facilitated by one therapist and on average 4 to 12 students.  If you are interested in joining, please contact the Barnes Center at The Arch health and wellness team by email or call 315.443.8000 to schedule an initial therapist consultation.

If an Options group is recommended, the therapist will then take the next steps needed to get you scheduled. If you are currently seeing a therapist at the Barnes Center at The Arch, talk with your therapist about the group and how it could benefit you. A group orientation is not required to attend an Options Education Group but a student should have completed an initial consultation during the current semester.
