USI's Alcohol & Drug Prevention page is an excellent resource for information. We understand that many people want to "party" and the goal of this page is to help people have fun safely, reasonably, and responsibly should they choose to use. Here you will find:
- Factual information about alcohol & marijuana
- Information about alcohol & marijuana use on campus
- Information about USI policies and legal penalties
- Signs of alcohol poisoning and drug overdose
- Information about USI's medical amnesty program that will limit the amount of trouble you may get in if you need to call for help
- Information about the "Safe Ride" program that allows you to get a cab when you have no cash.
Click here to take one of our online screenings and get personal information about your alcohol use, marijuana use, and/or learn about whether you might have a problem.
Do you see your friends drinking or smoking their life away?
Maybe you or your peers need information on Bystander Intervention. Check out Make the First Move webpage and contact Christine Johnston in the Recreation, Fitness, and Wellness Center to set up a program. Dare to be the red sheep!
