Collegiate Prevention Programming
Substance Use Disorder is a brain disease characterized by persistent drug-seeking and/or drug-taking behaviors, effecting a person's physical, social, emotional, and/or occupational aspects of a person's life (Shariatirad et al., 2013; Volkow et al., 2011).
Prevention programs strengthen protective factors prevention by addressing those most at risk with accurate information about alcohol and other drugs, articulate the potential consequences from their abuse, and offer activities unrelated to drinking or drugging. Below are examples of evidence based prevention for college campuses. To find the right program for your campus, check out SAMHSA's Resource Center, the Excellence in Prevention Strategy List, and the College AIM website.
Prevention Network does not endorse the following programs. All programs should be evaluated for effectiveness and cost by the individual institution. This non-inclusive list only serves as a possible resource.
