Harford Community Coll., Bel Air, MD.
This publication, designed for employees of Harford Community College (HCC) in Maryland, establishes policy and provides drug information. After describing the philosophy which underpins HCC policy on drug abuse, a section on standards of conduct details expectations for faculty, staff, and student employees; requirements under the law regarding notification in the event of a drug related conviction; institutional consequences on conviction of a drug related crime; and other issues. A five page chart indicates the health risks and penalties under state, federal, and local laws for each category of drug and alcoholic beverage. There follows a section on education and counseling programs (HCC publications, local community health services, employee health benefit coverage); a description of sanctions which may be imposed in the event of policy violation (successful completion of an appropriate rehabilitation or treatment program, suspension with or without pay, termination, referral to authorities for prosecution); a list of campus positions suggested for representation on a policy review board; and a statement on dissemination of the policy and procedures. The final section lists local community drug and alcohol counseling, treatment and rehabilitation centers arranged by community and including address, telephone number and contact person. (JB)
