Prevent negative consequences of illicit drug use on your campus.

A Bigger Problem

While the rates of students’ other drug use are much lower than alcohol, illicit drug use can lead to serious negative consequences, including addiction and death.

Here are some facts to consider:

  • More than one third of college students (39%) have used an illicit drug in the past year and more than one in five (22.5%) in the past month.
  • The illicit drugs most frequently used by college students include marijuana, amphetamines, and narcotics other than heroin.
  • The non-medical use of prescription drugs negatively impacts academic success. While many students claim that using stimulants as “study aids” help them perform better, in fact, students who abuse alcohol and other drugs typically spend less time studying, skip class more often, and earn lower grades

In order to prevent on-campus use of drugs and their associated consequences, it is important for students to know the facts about how illicit drugs affect their bodies and the potential consequences of using the drugs (illegal or legal) alone or mixed with alcohol.
