Drug & Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program


As a Christian institution of higher education, Regent University follows the Bible’s call to a sober mind and sound judgment. All members of the Regent community—faculty, staff and students—are required to refrain from illegal drugs and abuse of alcohol. With the well-being of the university community in mind and in accordance with the federal Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the federal Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989, Regent implemented a program designed to prevent the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illegal drugs, and the abuse of alcohol, by its employees and students. Further, Regent has compiled important information about the risks of drug and alcohol abuse, the legal consequences of drug and alcohol abuse and helpful resources to assist individuals struggling with substance abuse. The following Drug & Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program has been adopted by Regent University and applies to all students, faculty and staff.
