Drug and Alcohol Policy
Use or abuse of alcohol or illegal drugs is opposed to the principles of safe care for patients and personal growth of students. Therefore, the college supports the prevention of alcohol and drug abuse in all settings and strictly prohibit use of either by students on college property. Students and employees must attend a mandatory drug and alcohol abuse prevention program offered by the college. Students will not be allowed to have drugs or alcoholic beverages on the premises and will not be permitted to remain on the premises under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The college reserves the right to use whatever mean appropriate to enforce possession and usage regulations. Such procedures shall be determined by the college administration. If a student is found to be in possession of, using, diverting, or selling a legally controlled substance, the student will be required to meet with the college administration. At that time the student may be requested to seek professional counseling, withdraw from the program or be dismissed from the college, depending on the gravity of the situation. The appropriate authorities will be notified. Clinical agency policies concerning drugs and alcohol will be in effect for students work in the clinical area. Any student convicted of a felony or misdemeanor involving drugs or alcohol must notify the college administration within 5 days of such conviction. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action. (see Financial Aid Drug Policy).
