Substance abuse has had a long-standing presence on college campuses nationwide and continues to be a difficult problem to solve. Adjusting to campus life is challenging and stressful for many students. They have to navigate a new life, roommates, responsibilities, and a different educational environment. Alcohol and drug abuse can be an attractive coping mechanism for some students.

Additionally, mental health issues among students are increasing, and their frequent co-occurrence with substance abuse complicates the provision of appropriate treatment. In this presentation we will discuss current trends regarding substances being used on college campuses, identify common co-occurring mental health disorders, and explore current prevention, treatment, and support plans being used on college campuses.

  • Investigation of current trends regarding substances being used on college campuses
  • Identification of common co-occurring mental health disorders correlated with substance use disorders
  • Increased understanding of the reasons for these correlations
  • Exploration of current prevention, treatment and support plans put in place in various university settings
  • Discussion of potential prevention strategies
  • 2-year institutions & 4-year institutions
  • Vice President of Academic Affairs/Instruction
  • Vice President of Student Affairs
  • Dean of Instruction
  • Dean of Student Services/Affairs
  • Advising
  • Counseling
  • Residence Life
  • Retention Specialist
  • First-Year Experience Coordinators
  • Anyone interested in helping students with mental health & substance abuse issues
 "Often counseling and student affairs professionals see the use of alcohol and drugs only as a problem. But to the student who has been struggling with anxiety and depression-often unidentified or under-treated for years, these very substances initially not only make them feel better than they have ever felt, but better than they could have even imagined they could feel. It is this experience that can so powerfully bind them to continued use despite worsening mental health and addiction symptoms." 

Jonathan Beazley LMFT LADC is a clinician with over 35 years in the field of substance abuse treatment. He is presently the AOD (Alcohol and Other Drugs) Interventionist at the UConn campus in Storrs where he has provided student counseling, campus outreach, internship training and educational seminars since 2009. He also has a private practice in Chaplin, CT, where he works with individuals, groups, families and couples, predominantly focusing on substance abuse. Not only has he had experience in every level-of-care in the behavioral health spectrum, he has also managed an array of substance abuse/mental health services in his career, including inpatient detoxification, residential, intensive outpatient and outpatient levels of care. Additionally, he is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist having earned his MFT at Southern Connecticut State University in 1991, and frequently works with the families and loved ones of persons battling substance-use disorders.

 "Treatment is a process, whether it be substance use or mental health treatment, or both. Change may not be observed immediately, but it is important to remember that every bit of what we do in our roles throughout the university to encourage students to get the help that they need, is a valuable part of the treatment process."

Paige Hover, PsyD is a recent graduate of the Clinical Psychology Program at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. Dr. Hover has dedicated much of her professional training career to substance use treatment and prevention in various settings throughout the nation. Dr. Hover began co-leading therapy groups with patients in a psychiatric inpatient hospital on their chemical dependency unit. This group employed Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help group members identify values and goals to sustain their treatment progress beyond the initial stages. Dr. Hovers training then shifted gears to focus on providing individual and group therapy to adolescent males in a medium security prison who had been identified as having had problems with substance use. This was a rewarding and educational experience from which she came to understand some of the unique challenges clients can encounter in conjunction to managing their recovery. Dr. Hover was then able to draw upon these skills in her role in the intake department at a renowned residential rehabilitation facility specializing in substance use and mental health treatment. Dr. Hover served on the front lines, gaining valuable assessment skills as well as getting first-hand accounts of the raw emotion associated with the decision to seek help.

For the past three years, Dr. Hover has worked and trained in various college counseling centers. It is here that her passion and enthusiasm for her work truly blossomed; she recognized the challenge in promoting and providing substance use treatment in an environment where social norms can desensitize students to the dangers of substance abuse. Cultivating her natural enthusiasm, she collaborated with Jonathan Beazley, LMFT, LADC to educate as many people as possible about substance use and mental health issues on campuses and to inspire discussions about ways various university representatives can all work together to help students succeed, despite the challenges they face. She is currently completing her post-doctoral fellowship at Eastern Michigan University, and she aspires to develop and implement effective substance use prevention and treatment and recovery programs in universities nationwide.

Which workshops are your top rated?

We take quality seriously, and so all of our workshops are top notch in terms of content and look. However, if we know how you plan to use StudentLingo (FYE, Retention, Probation, TRIO, etc.), we can make workshop recommendations.


Funding is a little tight, how many workshops can I get for $XX?

You can buy the entire StudentLingo package (48 workshops) or we offer several a la carte options. Unlike a lot of other software companies, we don’t charge per user, so we can work with any budget. We recommend talking to other departments on campus to increase your purchasing power and to share the cost. Also, we do have a pay model whereby students pay directly.

This is a feature of our platform, but comes at an additional cost. With the admin view, you get access to more advanced reporting, and you have it in real time. With the standard membership, you get monthly reports.


How have other schools leveraged reporting?
  • One of our partners, College of Southern Nevada, used StudentLingo to measure learning outcomes. in a study, one class had access to StudentLingo and the other cohort did not. 92% of the cohort with access to StudentLingo earned a whole letter grade higher than the cohort without StudentLingo.
  • A lot of our partners use the data to justify funding for grants, operating dollars, or for new program development.
  • The evaluation data is particularly useful in identifying what type of learning students prefer and the qualitative takeaways from viewing the workshop.
  • Some of our partners use the data to connect with their student information system, like Banner or Peoplesoft. 
  • I think a great way to get started on how you want to use the data is to ask yourself some questions:
    1. How will I know if StudentLingo was successful?
    2. What do I hope students will gain from access to StudentLingo?
    3. What data is important for me to know in order to show that StudentLingo is a worthwhile purchase?
What is TutorLingo?

TutorLingo is a series of 9 online training modules that prepare tutors by providing the basic skills necessary to support their peers in becoming more independent and strategic learners.


Should the TutorLingo trainings be viewed in any particular order?

No, each training is a stand-alone workshop, and they can be viewed in any order.


What is the CRLA?

The CRLA is a group of student-oriented professionals active in the fields of reading, learning assistance, developmental education, tutoring, and mentoring. In 1989, the CRLA created a training program that is considered ‘best-practice’ for tutor training. A fews years ago, Innovative Educators partnered with the CRLA to create supplementary training modules. Our training supports learning centers in achieving level 1 certification through CRLA.


Do CRLA members receive a discount on TutorLingo?

Yes. CRLA members receive a 10% discount on TutorLingo.
