Drug and Alcohol Awareness and Overdose Prevention

Programs and Initiatives for Drug and Alcohol Awareness and Overdose Prevention

Let’s talk about substance use and recovery. As the nation’s opioid epidemic continues, more than 40 states have reported increases in opioid-related mortality as well as ongoing concerns for those with a mental illness or substance use disorder in counties and other areas within the state. UMB is committed to promoting activities and providing resources that promote the health and wellness of students, especially students who are seeking alcohol and substance use support and recovery.
