Counseling >> Drugs & Alcohol
 
 

Holy Cross addresses drug and alcohol use through a multi-modal program that attempts to educate the students by informing them of the physiological and psychological dangers that can come with both legal and illicit drug use. Students are exposed to this information through Guidance Lessons conducted by the counselors, immersive off-campus field trips, grade level retreats, and individual sessions with counselors on an as-need basis. The counselors attempt to address not only the dangers and addictive properties of drug and alcohol use, but also the associated peer-pressures that go along with exposure to drug use in the context of students’ social interactions. Special attention is also paid to the unique cultural environment of New Orleans and how that may affect the way that students, families, and peers view alcohol and drug use.

Holy Cross School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its policies.
