If you are a student with an urgent need, an on-call counselor is available during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Examples of urgent needs include thoughts of harming yourself or others, sexual assault or other traumatic experience.

 

After 5 p.m. weekdays, weekends and holidays, a counselor may be reached by contacting the OSU Police, 405-744-6523.

  •  What happens in a counseling session?

    It is normal to feel some apprehension when first coming to counseling.  ASAC offers a professional, safe, and nonjudgmental environment where you may speak privately, yet openly about concerns, thoughts and feelings. An ASAC counselor or supervised graduate intern will help you gain insight into your concerns about how alcohol or substance use is affecting your life today and explore options for change.

  •  What if I don't want anyone to know I'm seeing a counselor?

    Confidentiality is taken seriously at ASAC. Only you have the right to tell others you are speaking to a counselor. ASAC staff are ethically and legally bound and committed to maintain your privacy. There are specific exceptions to confidentiality that will be explained when you initiate counseling.
