ATOD - Alcohol, Tobaco, & Other Drugs Program

(562) 985-5859

Evolving from a nation wide necessity to address behaviors such as driving under the influence, underage drinking and factors associated with risky drinking, ATOD at CSULB has successfully developed innovative campus-wide programs and services for students aimed at intervention. As part of an interconnected program it works closely with students and the surrounding community. By recognizing the power of influence, ATOD has effectively implemented and promoted safe and healthy choices by offering appealing programs targeted at alcohol and drug issues.

Students are encouraged to participate in such programs as on-campus weekly Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings

and various outreach presentations that cover the health effects, symptoms of abuse, and policies regarding possession, use and sale of alcoholic beverages and illegal drugs. Information material and referrals are also provided. Go to the ATOD website for more information.

Student Health Services provides an overall coordination of the ATOD program with direct support from the Office of Student Conduct & Ethical Development. This allows ATOD to be more than just an intervention program; it is a powerful disciplinary process. Offenders will complete the Step 1-2-3 Education Plan to fulfill campus violation requirements. These steps carry over from one year to the next for as long as a student is enrolled at the University.

The Step 1-2-3 Education Plan is as follows:

Step 1: Attend Mandatory ATOD Class: Student Health Services

Step 2: Counseling Assessment: Student Health Services

Step 3: Disciplinary Action and/or University Discharge: Office of Student Conduct & Ethical Development
