Students may walk in themselves, be referred anonymously by other students, faculty, or staff, or be referred after violating the campus Alcohol and Other Drug policy to the Center for a PIER 21 Appointment. This meeting consists of an assessment of the student's alcohol or other drug use with the purpose of helping the student to reevaluate the affect that substances are having on his/her life. The student may be referred to other programs and services in order to best assist him/her in making positives changes. This is not about getting a friend in trouble! This is about getting a friend help!

Need some personal help? Want to discuss making a change?

Know a friend, roommate, or student you are concerned about?

  • Come to PIER 21 for an assessment meeting, or refer a friend whose life is negatively affected by alcohol or other drugs.
  • ANONYMOUS AND CONFIDENTIAL! This meeting is about helping the student understand that alcohol or other drugs are putting them at risk. It also serves as a first step for students who want to make positive change in their own life. This is a caring process dedicated to providing the best resources available to make sure that the student has a safe, healthy, fun, and successful experience at UM.
