Find your balance.

If you’re interested in volunteering for Vice, there will be 2 rounds of hiring – mid-July and early August. Find out more through the AMS VICE Facebook page. 

VICE aims to become your support system, whether you decide to achieve abstinence or find your balance with alcohol, drugs, and technology use. VICE’s services are centered around educationpeer dialogue, and mentorship.

Educational Outreach

VICE aims to equip students with the knowledge that they need to make informed decisions about their substance use patterns.

With the intention of shifting away from a common misconception surrounding substance use patterns at universities, VICE will provide students with accurate information about substances themselves, average usage rates within our community and the characteristics and risks associated with a range of substance use patterns. The aim of providing this information will be to engage students in critical reflection, intentionality and agency to foster a greater capacity to manage their own health.

Peer Dialogue Sessions

VICE also provides groups of peers the opportunity to have open and honest discussions about what healthy substance use looks like to them. Talking openly with peers and students may reveal a less distorted view about what other students are truly comfortable with. Through engagement in these conversations, students may find guidance and support in each other on their own journey to finding balance in substance use and their own limits.

Mentorship

For those who may need some additional support, VICE offers a mentorship program. This consists of being paired with a mentor, who they will collaborate with to determine a course of action that will support the student in reaching the substance use pattern that is best for them.

With the tools that you need, VICE can help you get on track towards a lifestyle that you’re happy with.
