The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is committed to educating the UMB community about opioid use, misuse, and abuse. At UMB, we believe in the importance of creating safe and healthy environments.

All first-time full-time students are required to complete an online Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention module provided by UMB through VectorSolutions. All other students will receive the module as an optional resource. A hold will be placed on the accounts of any first-time full-time students who do not complete the module.

First-time full time students must complete the online Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention module by Saturday, October 15, 2022. If you have missed the deadline and have a hold on your account, you can complete the training here. Holds will be lifted the same day around 11:45 p.m.

The training will focus on:

  • a variety of topics, including the science of addiction, recognizing the signs of abuse, properly using and disposing of prescription drugs, strategies to assist others, and treatment resources.
  • empowering students to make well-informed decisions about drugs.
  • making you aware of your rights and responsibilities as a member of our campus community.

If you have questions regarding the training, please contact Julia Wightman, Director, URecFit and Wellness by telephone at 410-706-0288 or via email at:
