Drug Prevention & Education Programs

Through DACC Student Services, Campus Security, Human Resources, and community resources, a variety of information and educational programs/interventions are offered to prevent and reduce alcohol and other drug use/abuse for the DACC community. The College also provides a free, online training that discusses the responsibilities and consequences of using drugs and alcohol. Specifically, the Alcohol Awareness for Students, Bystander Intervention for Students, and Drug Awareness & Abuse courses are recommended for ALL college students. These online trainings can be found on the Current Students webpage at under the DACC Safe Colleges Training link. A biennial review of our alcohol and other drug prevention strategies is also performed to determine the effectiveness and implement changes as needed.
