Alcohol is the number one drug that college students experiment with, and DePaul University chooses to acknowledge this fact and equip students with education about moderation and harm reduction.
Cannabis is now the second most commonly used drug among college students. HPW engages students in discussion and education around cannabis to empower them to make informed decisions.
Are you starting to question your relationship with alcohol and drugs? Are you concerned about a family member or friend's use? Learn about the resources at DePaul that will be most helpful to you.
HPW can provide education about alcohol and other drugs in the classroom at an instructor's request. Initiatives such as Alcohol Awareness Days strive to reach the student body as a whole, with programs providing direct education about harm reduction or raising awareness of the impact of substance abuse.
