Alcohol and Other Drug Education Service (AODES)

214 English/Counseling Services Building

The use of alcohol and other drugs has been a fact of the American way of life since our nation's beginning. Today, substance abuse represents a major problem in American colleges and universities. Indeed throughout history alcohol, in particular, has been used as a source of pleasure, and for some the use of alcohol has been a source of problems. A recent survey showed that about 82% of the students on this campus drink alcoholic beverages. Of greater concern, however, is that as many as 15% of K-State students report having significant negative consequences as a result of their use of alcohol.

The programs of the K-State Alcohol and Other Drug Education Service are focused toward the Manhattan and K-State community. The major purpose of the program is to provide information on the physical effects and social issues related to alcohol and other drug use. A variety of programming options are available to K-State students, faculty, and staff. The K-State Alcohol and Other Drug Education Service is also available for information, consultation, and assistance at your request.

I encourage you to stop by my office located on the second floor of the English/Counseling Services Building (8 a.m.-5 p.m.) or call (785) 532-6927 with questions, comments or suggestions for our program.
