A Proactive Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Program.
Sallett, Alphonse J.
Anticipating a resident population by 1991, the State University of New York Institute of Technology at Utica/Rome is establishing a proactive alcohol and drug abuse prevention program with links to the surrounding community. According to a recent study, the college student population exceeds national norms for alcohol and drug consumption, and data further suggest that the addition of residence halls will attract both younger students with greater propensity for psychoactive drug use and illicit drug sellers. Based on a review of the literature, the program objectives are to: (1) strengthen prohibition of illicit drug use and self-destructive alcohol use; (2) prevent and reduce on-campus use of these substances by developing and disseminating credible scientific information on their adverse consequences; (3) stimulate and support student-generated alternatives to their use and plan for maximal use of the educational, athletic, and social resources and facilities of the college; (4) develop and execute an alcohol and drug education and training program for all institutional personnel; (5) reduce on-campus alcohol and drug use through referral to community resources, counseling, and self-help; and (6) prevent drug and alcohol abuse by stimulating prevention and treatment efforts in primary and secondary transfer institutions.
