Drug and Alcohol Abuse

The College of Southern Maryland is committed to providing and maintaining an environment for faculty, staff, and students that is drug-free, healthy, safe, and secure. Faculty, staff, and students are expected and required to report each day in an appropriate mental and physical condition, free of any illegal drugs and alcohol and capable of fulfilling their daily duties. The college supports all local, state, and federal laws related to drug and alcohol abuse, including but not limited to the Drug-free Workplace Act and the Drug-free Schools and Campuses Act. Although the college recognizes drug and alcohol dependency as an illness and a major health problem affecting society, it also recognizes drug and alcohol use as a potential health, safety, and security problem. The college offers a variety of drug and alcohol abuse education and prevention programs throughout the year. It encourages students and employees to attend these programs and to take advantage of the resources provided to the college community by the Safe Communities Center.
