Website Targets College Drug Use

U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has a website focused on preventing and addressing drug abuse among college students. The website, CampusDrugPrevention.gov, serves as a resource for professionals working to prevent drug abuse. It also serves as a tool for college students, parents and others involved in campus communities.

The website includes information on drugs, including their appearance, paraphernalia and effects on the body; news updates; drug scheduling and penalties; publications; research; national and statewide conferences and events; state and local prevention contacts; and resources available from DEA’s federal partners. It also includes a “Help a Friend” resource to educate and prepare those who plan to talk to their friends or loved ones about drug use concerns.

For more information and to receive updates on campus drug prevention efforts and resources, visit www.CampusDrugPrevention.gov.
