The Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselors in the United Independent School District strive to educate students about the dangerous effects of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs to help students develop healthy coping skills in order to make informed and educated decisions. The counselors educate parents and staff about the latest substance use trends as well as signs and symptoms of use.
Challenge Courses are physically & emotionally safe proving grounds for exploring new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. They are used by facilitators as a counseling tool to help students develop communication, problem-solving, decision making and teamwork skills in order to build trust and confidence.
On Demand Drug Kits are take home urine drug test kits available for parents with children in 6th-12th grade. Kits are free and available at all UISD middle schools and high schools. Results are confidential and are used for informational purposes for parents only.
