College is a time to forge new social relationships and explore independence and choice-making. Most CSU students make wise choices around substance use. However, for some students, substance use can be a major obstacle to their personal and academic success.

Health Education and Prevention Services staff work collaboratively on substance abuse prevention efforts, focused on helping students make healthy and responsible choices, while avoiding harm to self and others. Strategies used address risk and enhance protective factors at the individual, group and community level.

Detailed substance abuse prevention initiatives can be found in the HEPS Initiatives Summary.
