A Thursday evening forum offers advice on how to help students avoid, or recover from, the excesses of the collegiate drinking culture. It takes place in the Commons Room, ground floor of the Casey Academic Center at 7 p.m.

CHESTERTOWN, MD—Alcohol abuse is a serious, often fatal, problem on American college campuses, where underage consumption and binge drinking send thousands of students to emergency rooms each year for alcohol poisoning and accidents. As part of National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week, Washington College’s Counseling Center will host a discussion Thursday evening, October 23, on how to help young adults with alcohol abuse and addictions. The event will take place at 7:00 p.m. in the Casey Academic Forum’s ground floor Commons Room. 

Guest speakers will be Katherine E. Wright, a licensed clinical alcohol and drug counselor who serves as Prevention Coordinator at Queen Anne’s Department of Health, and several young people who are in recovery from alcohol addiction. 

“This is a chance to hear how all of us, fellow students, professors and staffers, can help young people who are in the throes of addiction and life-threatening drinking habits,” says Miranda Altman, director of the College’s counseling office. “We welcome the whole community to join us in this discussion.”
