Self Assessment Workshop (SAW)

No SAW workshops are scheduled for Spring or Summer 2017. Please check back in late August 2017 for possible workshops during the fall semester. 

What is SAW?

The Self Assessment Workshop is a two-part, small group program designed to assist students in conducting a comprehensive exploration and a thorough self assessment of their own drinking and drug use patterns.

What does it do?

The workshop focuses on making mature decisions about drinking or drug use that minimize potential problems. The format of the program is designed around group discussion, and all students are expected to participate. Individualized reports are provided as part of this program to help students evaluate their behavior.

What do I need to do?

The first thing you need to do is register for the workshop. In order to do this, please contact the Alcohol and Other Drug Program at 217-333-7557. During this call, you need to specify which class you want to attend. Each class is two (2) sessions, approximately two (2) hours per session. Therefore, your commitment is approximately four hours total. Maximum class size is 8. If the class is full, you will be asked to select an alternate date. After this, all you need to do is attend the class.

What then?

Participants will need to bring names, addresses, and fax numbers of referral agency. Registration forms and releases will be filled out at the first session. With your written permission, the person or office that referred you will be notified of compliance of class attendance.
