Alcohol and Drug Resources
Some students may enter college already having experience with alcohol and drug use. Unstructured time, being away from home (often for the first time), and widespread availability of alcohol can lead to problems. According to the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health NS, 33% of college students ages 18-22 reported binge drinking in the past month and 8% reported heavy alcohol use in the last month compared to noncollege peers. Some consequences from substance abuse include negative impact on academic performance, alcohol-related assault and sexual assault, mental and physical health concerns, involvement with police and/or student conduct and injuries. It is important to recognize red flags to prevent short and long-term consequences from substance abuse. We encourage you to review the information below.
