Drugs and alcohol

If drugs or alcohol are becoming a problem for you or someone you know, there are people and resources available to help.

You can organise an appointment with the University’s Drug and Alcohol Counsellor through a referral from a Student Wellbeing Advisor or your counsellor.

There are also a range of support systems that can be accessed online or via an app.
