If you are a student with concerns about potential difficulties with alcohol or other drugs, you are not alone. College can be both a wonderful and demanding time of life, and many people use drugs or alcohol to cope….or just to “have a good time.” Of course, using alcohol and drugs can be fun, but overuse can lead to academic problems, relationship difficulties, problems with motivation, legal trouble, changes in health status, and other consequences that can be surprising and challenging.
It is crucial to find others - either peers or professionals – who understand your concerns and can support you in making responsible and healthy choices. There are many different services and activities on the Fort Lewis Campus. The key is to know where to find them. Don’t wait!
