Substance abuse is a problem that affects people of all ages, including college students. College students may face unique challenges related to substance abuse, such as peer pressure, academic stress, and newfound freedom away from home. In addition, college students who abuse substances are at a higher risk for academic problems, impaired judgment, risky sexual behavior, and legal issues. It is important for college students who struggle with substance abuse to seek help from on-campus resources, such as counseling services and support groups, or from off-campus treatment programs if necessary.
