Drugs and Medication

The use of drugs (including alcohol and prescription medication) can have significant impacts on our lives. Sometimes helpful, sometimes harmful, drugs definitely have a presence in college life. Although alcohol is a commonly used drug among college students, we have dedicated a separate page to alcohol information.
 
Sometimes, a combination of the media's portrayals of college life and the individuals we surround ourselves with can influence our perception of college drug use. In reality, the data on college drug use is typically much lower than we perceive it to be; however, these numbers are not negligible.
