The Reality of Substance Use in College: When to Be Concerned

Experimenting with drugs and alcohol has become an accepted part of the college experience, often glamorized by films and television shows. This portrayal leads us to expect that college students will engage in partying. However, the reality of drinking and using drugs in college is far less glamorous than it appears and easily leads to addiction and further issues in life.

So, when does drug and alcohol use among college students become a concern? It’s time to take notice if a student finds that their substance use is negatively impacting their ability to complete schoolwork or if they are missing classes due to hangovers. In such cases, seeking help and speaking to someone about their use can be beneficial.

College Student Drug Use Statistics

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) reports that approximately 9% of full-time students aged 18-22 met the criteria for an alcohol use disorder in 2019. National surveys have shown that over half of all college students in this age group drank in the previous month, with about 33% of those students reporting binge drinking.

Binge drinking is prevalent on college campuses, especially during drinking games. It is classified as consuming five or more drinks in two hours for men and four or more drinks in two hours for women.

Binge drinking can lead to serious health concerns, including:

Alcohol Poisoning: Life-threatening levels of alcohol in the bloodstream.
Motor Vehicle Accidents: Increased risk of accidents and drunk driving arrests.
Assaults: Higher likelihood of involvement in physical assaults and other alcohol-related injuries.
Alcohol-Related Deaths: The NIAAA reports approximately 1,500 college students die each year from alcohol-related injuries, including accidental injuries, alcohol poisoning, and car accidents.
Sexual Assault: Research indicates that 1 in 5 college women experience a sexual assault, with alcohol use commonly being a factor.

Additionally, the NIAAA estimates that students who binge drink three times each week are six times more likely to receive poor grades compared to their peers who do not binge drink. This is often due to being impaired during exams, being hungover, and not spending enough time studying.

Why is Addiction Common Among College Students?

Several factors contribute to the prevalence of alcohol and drug consumption on college campuses. The societal norms and expectations of drinking while at college play a significant role. This normalization can lead to the downplaying of drinking experiences, where poor grades, missed classes, and changes in behavior are often excused as typical college experimentation. In reality, these changes can be early warning signs of an alcohol use disorder.

When these signs are not recognized and addressed, students are more likely to continue struggling with substance abuse.
Additionally, alcohol and drugs are often easily accessible on college campuses. The easy availability contributes to increased consumption, whether obtained at parties or purchased by older students.

For many students, the freedom of being away from home for the first time allows for more opportunities. This newfound independence requires balancing academic responsibilities with social activities. Regardless of their home environment, the initial years at college are a crucial learning experience, and without proper guidance, this period can lead to risky behaviors and frequent substance abuse.

Supporting College Students in Overcoming Addiction

Thankfully, there has been an increase in efforts to provide education, assessment, and treatment for college students struggling with substance abuse. Support can come from Resident Advisors, Professors, and the college campus counseling center.

Some students may benefit from receiving education about the dangers of binge drinking and the potential consequences. For those who have crossed the line from experimenting with alcohol and drugs to problematic use, specialized rehab programs for college students are appropriate.

College student addiction treatment programs are similar to traditional drug and alcohol rehab programs. These include detox, inpatient rehab, intensive outpatient treatment, and outpatient treatment.
For students who choose detox and inpatient treatment, it may be necessary to take a temporary leave of absence to engage fully in their recovery. While in a treatment program, students will likely reside at the facility and participate in daily programming, making attending classes and completing coursework nearly impossible.

College student rehab programs typically offer specialized programming designed for their unique needs. This can involve learning to cope with the stress of being a student and navigating social situations that involve alcohol. This specialized programming is usually integrated into the broader addiction treatment plan the facility offers.

Addiction Treatment for College Students at Impact Wellness Network

Several resources are available to college students to help them find addiction treatment. One key resource is the college counseling center. Given the prevalence of alcohol and drug use on college campuses, it is not surprising that counseling centers have information about local treatment providers.

The counseling center staff can discuss the various levels of care available and help determine what you might need. If there are no local addiction treatment providers, they should assist in finding other options for you.
Another resource for college students seeking treatment programs is their insurance providers. Cost is often a concern when looking for treatment, so speaking with your insurance provider about in-network providers can help clarify what you would be financially responsible for.

You can contact your insurance provider by calling the number on the back of your insurance ID card or by logging into their website. Each insurance plan is different, so it’s essential to discuss what treatment options are covered.

At Impact Wellness Network, we offer various levels of care tailored to meet your needs. Our comprehensive approach allows you to progress through different levels of care seamlessly, ensuring you receive the support you need throughout your recovery journey.
