Book Description

Professionals who work with college students--and college students themselves--address the current epidemic of drug use on college campuses in this timely book. In acknowledging that substance abuse problems proliferate during college and on into adult life when they then affect the next generation, the outstanding group of contributors offers forthright and clear descriptions, explanations, and suggestions for helping students, including examples of university services that have proven successful in dealing with student substance abuse. This helpful book aims to reverse the trend of ambivalence and confusion of administrators and college counselors regarding the area of substance use disorder by providing practical intervention strategies.
