We join with our Health & Wellness colleagues in this message of support.



UCSB Alcohol and Drug Program hopes everyone stays healthy and safe.

The Alcohol and Drug Program offices at Embarcadero Hall are closed but counseling appointments are available with the following changes in place to protect the health of the community.

- Established counseling and supportive appointments will remain in place and new appointments will continue to be scheduled. These appointments will be changed to a phone session or a remote session using Zoom. 

- Alternatively, students have the option of brief update communications with their treatment providers using secure messaging.  

- All late cancellation and no-show fees are waived at this time, however, we ask that you send a secure message to your provider to cancel your appointment(s) so that we can plan accordingly.

- When we schedule a new appointment we will confirm your session preference and make sure we have your current contact information. At the time of the scheduled appointment, your provider will initiate the contact.

In an effort to minimize the risk of exposure in our community, the UCSB campus will be offering only remote instruction for Spring Quarter. The campus will remain open and operational, but students who can safely do so are urged to leave and take all of their personal items from their university-owned housing. The most current information regarding this transition can be found in Chancellor Yang’s March 14 COVID-19 Response Update and Spring Quarter Guidance. In addition, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs has provided further clarification in the form of FAQs.

UCSB Student Health is currently maintaining regular hours and is implementing precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19 while ensuring the continuity of our service mission. Student Health will maintain regular hours and will be focused on addressing acute illnesses which may delay addressing non-urgent issues.
