Ohio Substance Abuse Resources for Students

As young adults attempt to navigate life, students face difficult challenges on all fronts: bullying in high school. Divisive family issues. Pressure to do well in college. The weight of these (and many more) stressful situations can lead to destructive behaviors like binge drinking on the weekend and dabbling with drugs in college. Experimenting with drugs in high school or drinking heavily in a university may be brushed off as typical, even expected, youthful debauchery. But left unchecked, this behavior can quickly spiral out of control.

Are you a high school student suffering from a dependence on drugs or alcohol? The loved one of a college or grad school student who struggles with addiction? Learn more about substance use disorders among Ohio students, local treatment centers, available hotlines and ways to help someone break the bonds of addiction for good.
