John A. Logan College views drug or substance abuse as having a debilitating effect upon a person’s physical and emotional well-being. Further, in accordance with the existing law, and sound educational practice, the College strongly discourages drug or substance abuse by any of its students, faculty, staff, or officers.

The unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession, or use of alcohol or a controlled substance is prohibited in and on John A. Logan College-owned and-controlled property, in any setting where the College has a contractual agreement for education, transportation, or housing, and on any College-sponsored off-campus trip or activity of an educational nature.

Any John A. Logan College student determined to have violated this policy may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including suspension. In addition, a student receiving financial aid may lose that assistance. The use of alcohol while on John A. Logan College-owned or controlled grounds, including meal periods and breaks, is absolutely prohibited except when authorized by the College for approved College functions.

In addition to enforcing (or aiding in the enforcement of) the laws that regulate such abuse, the College provides drug abuse prevention information (programs) through its health classes, special informational events, and a pamphlet as well as through its professional counseling staff for individuals who seek such information.

While the College does not have a rehabilitation or counseling program for drug and substance abusers, it will assist, when called upon, in aiding an individual seeking help through appropriate referrals to certified drug and substance abuse counselors in the area.
