Educational Resources

Personal Screening

Online alcohol and drug awareness self-assessment modules provide you with an opportunity to learn more about the impact of alcohol and other drugs in your life. These personal screening tools provide you with an opportunity to self-assess in a confidential setting. You can discuss the results of your eCHUG or eTOKE with a counselor in the Metropolitan State Counseling Services department. To schedule an appointment, call the receptionist and ask for an appointment with a counselor (651-793- 1568 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday - Friday).

Both eCHUG and eTOKE are interactive web surveys that allow students to enter information about their drinking patterns or marijuana use and receive feedback about their use of alcohol or marijuana. The assessment is self-guided and takes only 10 minutes to complete. After completing the module, you are not required to meet with a counselor. However, if you would like to discuss the results with a counselor, call 651-793-1568 or come to the Saint Paul campus and go to Founders Hall, room 221 to make an appointment. Our services are free and confidential for Metropolitan State students.
