IMPACT is an evidence-based program designed for OSU students to engage in a focused and meaningful discussion about alcohol or marijuana substance use. During your IMPACT session, not only will you be provided with personalized feedback regarding your use but also a variety of harm-reduction strategies to help encourage social responsibility and personal safety.

IMPACT programs are made available to all students, but may be required for those students who have been sanctioned by the Residence Hall system, Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards, Corvallis Municipal Court, the Benton County Circuit Court, the City Attorney's Office, or other off-campus referral sources.

When sanctioned, there is a mandatory $175 fee to complete IMPACT. This fee contributes to the cost of facilitating the IMPACT program and employing graduate assistants within Prevention, Advocacy, and Wellness at Student Health Services.

For students who are required by a court to receive an evaluation from a certified professional for that alcohol and/or drug use, the IMPACT program is able to provide students with evolutions from a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC). There will be a mandatory $125 IMPACT fee and a $78 fee for each required follow-up appointment with the CADC. *Students who are required to have an evaluation should follow Direction Set #4.

Please select the scenario which best fits your situation and then follow the corresponding direction set:

1.       This is my first IMPACT Alcohol sanction

Follow Directions #1

2.       This is my first IMPACT Marijuana sanction

Follow Directions #2

3.       This is my second (or more) IMPACT sanction for alcohol and/or marijuana

Follow Directions #3

4.       I have been sanctioned to see the CADC directly

Follow Directions #4
