A Survey of "Drug Crash Pads" Operated in Big Ten and Big Eight Universities.
Dunning, G. B.; Lee, Charlene M.
The authors gathered information from Big Ten and Big Eight Universities regarding drug programs for college students, with a particular interest in provisions being made for aiding students who experience adverse hallucinatory activity. The results of a letter survey reveal widely divergent attempts to meet the drug crisis on university campuses. A summary of existing programs is included. Some universities provide extensive help in educational programs, medical referral and crisis aid while others prefer having drug problems handled off-campus. The paper concludes with: (1) a summary of literature available on crash pads; (2) a description of model Drug Control Center; and (3) an elaboration of factors considered essential to the successful operation of a crash-pad type facility.
