Drug and Alcohol Abuse Awareness and Prevention Program

The abuse and use of drugs and alcohol are of great concern in our society. These problems are extremely complex and ones for which there are no easy solutions.

From a safety perspective, drug or alcohol use may impair the well-being of all employees, students, and the public at large; drug and alcohol use may also result in damage to college property.

Therefore, it is the policy of Sandhills Community College that the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession, or use of a controlled substance or alcohol, is prohibited while in the workplace, on the college premises, or as part of any college sponsored activity.

Any employee or student violating this policy will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination or expulsion and referral for prosecution. The specifics of this policy can be found in the materials below.
