The University Chemical Dependency Project: Final Report.
Bloch, Steven A.; Ungerleider, Steven
To cope with changes in the way that alcohol and drugs are used and abused, college administrations have altered their appproaches to dealing with the problem. This study surveyed 971 students, faculty, and staff members of one university to assess: the level of alcohol and drug use and abuse at the university; factors associated with substance abuse; and the level of awareness and satisfaction with prevention, educational services, and treatment programs available on campus. This final report presents findings from the study. The first two sections of the report describe and analyze the context of the university's substance abuse program. Alcohol and drug use and abuse on U.S. campuses are discussed, approaches designed to alleviate alcohol and drug problems on campus are described, and the components of the university's program are compared to those at other universities. The next section delineates basic research issues to be investigated in the study, presents a general model of alcohol use and abuse, and explores the study methodology. Results are provided in the next section. A discussion and conclusion section assesses and interprets major findings of the study, comparing some of the findings to those obtained in a national study of alcohol use and abuse at colleges in the United States. One figure, 50 tables, and the survey questionnaire are included. (NB)
