Exploring Patterns of Alcohol Use

Wondering about your relationship with alcohol? If you're concerned that you might be struggling with alcohol addiction or dependence, check out this Online Screening Tool.

Curious about your or someone else’s alcohol and/or drug use? Geno Ring, LADC, provides two confidential consultation sessions FREE to Bowdoin students. 

Geno Ring works with Bowdoin students to assess their use of substances and the impact it is having on their lives. He also helps provide strategies to students interested in changing the role substances have in their lives. Students are able to see Geno Ring for two sessions at no cost if they have concerns about their use or are being impacted by someone else’s use. Geno Ring can also be a resource for parents who may be concerned about their Bowdoin student.

Every 2 weeks, Geno Ring facilitates a confidential dinner for students who are seeking support for alcohol abuse and recovery.
