Drug Free Campus Procedures

Chemical Dependency

UNMC supports the position that chemical dependency is a disease that can endanger the health and well being of students, employees, and faculty and can have a negative effect on the public they serve. UNMC advocates treatment and rehabilitation for affected students, employees, and faculty in a manner that first protects the public, while allowing a reasonable opportunity for recovery and re-entry into the workplace/classroom.

Employee Assistance Program

Arbor Family Counseling's Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is available to assist faculty and staff in distress. EAP provides information and cost-free confidential counseling services for employees/family members with concerns regarding substance abuse or dependency and is able to provide resource information to employees and family members.
