Prescription Drug Abuse: Impact on Students

Prescription Drug Abuse: Impact on Students

Social and Behavioral

Prescription drug abuse is a substantial problem on today’s campuses, and college students have a higher likelihood of misusing prescription stimulants, often referred to as “study drugs,” than their noncollege peers. Faculty and staff play a critical role in providing knowledge and raising awareness among students. This course is designed to provide faculty and staff with an overview of prescription drug abuse, its causes and effects, and ideas for increasing awareness among the campus community.
