Addressing Drug Misuse on a College Campus

Deborah Ebbinghaus Butler University
Faculty Sponsor(s): Sarah Diaz Butler University
In recent years, the United States has experienced an epidemic of drug misuse. Many studies have indicated those in the typical college age demographic of eighteen to twenty-five years of age are particularly at risk. This research examines prescription drug misuse on college campuses, with the aim of proposing additional resources for the University. It has three components: a literature analysis, a policy, procedure, and resource review, and new resource development. The literature review will examine journal articles published after January 1, 2010 related to prescription misuse in collegians. It will also examine state and university specific data. The policy, procedure, and resource review will be university specific, encompassing disciplinary, health and academic perspectives. The particular resources developed depend on the findings of the first two components of the research and the existing or foreseeable needs of the University. At this time, the resources are still in development.
