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 will make a good faith effort to maintain a drug-free workplace and campus, focusing primarily on prevention through education, early intervention, and providing referral services to employees and students with substance abuse problems. The college supports all local, state, and federal laws related to drug and alcohol abuse, including but not limited to the Drug-Free School and Communities Act as codified at 20 U.S.C. section 1011i.
