Macomb County Community College Drop-in Counseling Center: Proposal.
Mick, Adam, Jr.
This proposal introduces the concept of a student-operated, drop-in counseling center to serve the drug dependent young adult population (ages 18-30) on a community college campus and in the surrounding county. The center is designed to provide counseling as well as opportunities for alternative activities to drug dependency in a therapeutic environment designed to encourage self-awareness, confidence in one's self worth, and a life style that is both responsive to and responsible within society today. Goals include: (1) providing opportunities for developing alternatives to self defeating behaviors related to drug and narcotics abuse; (2) providing crisis intervention services for problems related to drug abuse; (3) providing referral for those seeking a service not offered; (4) providing consultation and education related to the drug abuse problem in the community; (5) developing an administrative structure capable of accomplishing these goals; and (6) assessing the effectiveness of the center in fulfilling these goals. An extensive list of policies and of the responsibilities accorded to each job is given. (TA)
