Appendix C. Alcohol and Other Drugs: Policies and Prevention

UCSC is responsible for providing a healthy environment where the use of alcohol and/or other drugs does not interfere with learning. Consequently, the university is committed to promoting a campus environment where community members who choose to use substances do so in a low-risk and legal manner.

The Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Abuse Prevention Program, located in the Health Center basement, provides students with the information, resources, and support to address substance use/abuse issues. Students can meet confidentially with staff to discuss their personal involvement with mood-altering chemicals, obtain educational materials, and participate in workshops or other programs. Students can also become involved with the AOD Program through various volunteer opportunities. For more information, contact
