The use of alcohol and other drugs has been a fact of the American way of life since our nation's beginning. Today, substance abuse represents a major problem in American colleges and universities. Indeed throughout history alcohol, in particular, has been used as a source of pleasure, and for some the use of alcohol has been a source of problems. A recent survey showed that about 82% of the students on this campus drink alcoholic beverages. Of greater concern, however, is that as many as 15% of KSU students report having significant negative consequences as a result of their use of alcohol.
The programs of the KSU Alcohol and Other Drug Education Service are focused toward the Manhattan and K-State community. The major purpose of the program is to provide information on the physical effects and social issues related to alcohol and other drug use. A variety of programming options are available to KSU students, faculty, and staff. The KSU Alcohol and Other Drug Education Service is also available for information, consultation, and assistance at your request.
I encourage you to stop by my office located on the second floor of the English/Counseling Services Building (8 a.m.-5 p.m.) or call (785) 532-6927 with questions, comments or suggestions for our program.
