Addictions are among us in society and they come in many different forms. Some are physical, some mental and others can be emotional. We care about you at UTPB and we want to provide as much education about this very touchy subject as possible. We also have the University Counseling and Psychological Services located on south campus which is available to you and could prove to be a vital resource for yourself or someone you may know with an addiction problem.
Located on south campus in the Founder's Building is UTPB's University Counseling and Psychological Services. Walk-ins are welcome or you can schedule an appointment to speak with a counselor. Services offered include:
