Alcohol & Drug Abuse Prevention Training
Alcohol and drug abuse is a serious concern on campuses. While many students think negative effects only come after decades of heavy drinking, alcohol abuse has an impact on their daily lives, their safety, and their futures. Individuals in college are more likely to abuse alcohol than people in the same age group not in college. Approximately twenty-five percent of college students report academic consequences of drinking, and estimates suggest that between fifty and eighty percent of campus violence is alcohol-related - including sexual assaults.
Campus Answers offers an Alcohol & Drug Abuse Prevention Course for all higher-education students. This course helps students understand the dangers and consequences of alcohol abuse and drugs, teaches them what the signs of a problem are, and how to get help. Students learn essential skills, like alternatives to drinking, and for those who are 21 or older, ways to drink responsibly. The course emphasizes personal responsibility while encouraging students to help friends make good decisions regarding drinking.
