This booklet for distribution to students and employees contains East Carolina University's (ECU/North Carolina) policy prohibiting illegal drug use, a description of the medical and legal implications of using illegal substances, and a listing of campus and off-campus resources available to assist persons with substance abuse problems. A statement of ECU philosophy proceeds the policy statement which includes sections on educational programs to prevent drug abuse, preventative counseling and rehabilitation programs, disciplinary actions, assignment of responsibilities under the policy, and policy dissemination. There follows a chart indicating for each category of illicit drug and for alcoholic beverages the health risks, the legal penalties under North Carolina law, and ECU disciplinary actions. Two more charts show the penalties for possession of drug paraphernalia, and for counterfeit controlled substances. Four final sections list various resources to assist with substance abuse including drug and alcohol resources and clinical services (address, telephone, contact person and program description for each service); self help resources (e.g., listing of times and places of local Alcoholics Anonymous meetings); academic resources (classes on substance abuse and faculty resources); religious organizations (address, contact person, and telephone number for each).
