What is IMEP? IMEP is a two-session marijuana assessment and education program offered free to all UM students. Note that you need to meet with the same facilitator twice.
Some students attend IMEP to fulfill a requirement as a result of a marijuana-related policy violation, while others participate because they would like to learn strategies to reduce use or quit altogether.
This program is designed to assist students in examining their own behavior in a judgment-free environment. The goals are selected by the student and aimed at reducing risky behaviors and harmful consequences.
Who are the Facilitators? IMEP facilitators are professional UHS staff and graduate-level interns.
What Students Can Expect
Program Description: IMEP consists of two sessions, which last 60-90 minutes each. All sessions are one-on-one between the student and a facilitator.
Session 1 assesses the student's use patterns, history and related issues. Students set goals and homework is assigned.
Session 2 provides personalized feedback based on assessments and homework and focuses on ways the student might reduce future health, social and legal risks.
If You Are Required to Complete IMEP due to a University violation, you will receive a deadline for completion. Be sure to register as soon as possible to ensure you will complete the program by your deadline.
Confidentiality: All information within the IMEP sessions is kept confidential between the student and the facilitator. However, if the student indicates that s/he may harm him/herself or others, information may be disclosed as appropriate.
If a student is required to complete IMEP, the only information shared with the referral source is whether the student completed the program by the assigned date.
