Drug Free Campus Statement.
Casper Coll., WY.
These three brief documents, a policy statement, a summary of pertinent laws on alcohol and illegal drugs, and a substance addiction specialist curriculum description, taken together describe the Casper College (Wyoming) drug and alcohol abuse prevention program. The policy statement briefly summarizes the health risks associated with drug and alcohol abuse and reviews campus and local treatment and referral options. A section detailing civil and campus legal and disciplinary actions covers student, staff and faculty responsibility to know the law, possibility of action by civil authorities and the college, conditions for suspension, and specific penalties for trafficking in or possession of illegal drugs and for alcohol related offenses. The sheet reviewing civil and criminal consequences for use and distribution of alcohol and illegal drugs lists offenses with their statute number and the sanctions for each in three categories: local, state and federal. Two pages on the Caspar College Addictions Specialist Department describes the requirements for three addictions specialist degrees (Associate of Arts Degree in Addictions, Associate of Science Degree in Addictions, and Associate of Applied Science Degree in Addictions) along with descriptions of eight addiction specialist courses.
