Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Policy
GOALS OF THE POLICY
Stevens Community members are its most valuable resource and their health and safety are matters of serious concern. The abuse of drugs and alcohol is potentially a grave danger to the college and its educational mission, and to the well-being of the community as a whole. Because of our concern for the health and safety of our students and employees, our desire for an efficient and effective workforce, and our intent to comply with applicable federal, state, and local laws regarding substance abuse, the college has formulated the following policy.
Stevens is committed to a drug-free environment in accordance with current statutory provisions. Unlawful manufacture, possession, distribution, dispensation, sale, or use of controlled substances (illegal drugs) on the campus is prohibited and will not be tolerated. Alcoholic beverages cannot be brought into or consumed on the premises, except in connection with authorized college events and in accordance with stated University policies. The Institute strictly enforces these policies. Violators are subject to college sanctions up to and including dismissal, and/or arrest and prosecution.
POLICY ON DRUGS AND ALCOHOL
Stevens is not a dry campus. The possession, sale, use, or distribution of alcoholic beverages by individuals under the age of 21 is prohibited. The possession and use of alcoholic beverages by individuals 21 at events and in their private rooms is permitted. No alcohol may be served at any Stevens function without the prior approval of the Institute. The possession, sale, use, or distribution of illegal drugs or narcotics is a violation of federal law. Illegal sale or distribution of prescription drugs, controlled substances, or other legal drugs is not permitted.

STANDARDS OF CONDUCT
Stevens is committed to creating and maintaining a campus environment that is free of alcohol and substance abuse and views the abuse of alcohol and legal drugs and the use of illicit drugs as being antithetical to the pursuit of educational excellence and the realization of one's full potential as a student and member of this community. Accordingly, the University takes very seriously its obligation to address the issue of all forms of substance abuse.
We believe that the best way to maintain an appropriate campus environment with respect to drugs and alcohol is through preventive education about the dangers of drug abuse and compassionate attention to the needs of those who may require help with alcohol or other drug-related problems. To that end, the University provides on-campus support programs and services, as well as information about related services that are available in the local community.
Stevens expects that students will conduct themselves in accordance with basic principles of personal responsibility, respect for order, and consideration of the rights of others. Implied in these expectations is the understanding that students are responsible for making their own decisions and accepting the consequences of those decisions. In order to make informed choices about alcohol and other drug use, students should educate themselves about the social, physiological, and psychological consequences of drug use or excessive drinking as well as the policies set forth below.
Stevens must uphold the law and, at the same time, render assistance to students when needed. If a student is found to have violated the Stevens Alcohol and Drug Policy, a formal written complaint should be submitted to the Dean of Students who will follow University judicial procedures in response to the complaint.
Students who violate the Stevens Alcohol and Drug Policy will be subject to disciplinary sanctions. Several factors will be considered when developing and applying sanctions for alcohol or drug violations. These include the seriousness of the violation, the intent of the offender, the effect of the conduct on the college community, and whether the student has violated the Stevens Code of Conduct in the past. Possible sanctions include one or more of the following:
- written reprimand
- mandatory drug and alcohol education
- appropriate community service
- referral and compliance with substance abuse treatment
- parental notification
- restitution to victims
- or any other action the college deems appropriate
The most severe sanctions, loss of on-campus housing, suspension from the University, or expulsion, will be imposed for the most serious violations - offenses that are violent, dangerous, or repeated. If the Dean of Students sees justification for suspension or expulsion from the Institute, the Stevens Judicial Procedures will be followed. Residence hall students should refer to the Office of Residence Life website for policies governing the Residence Halls. If any student or non-student is found selling or distributing illegal drugs or narcotics, he or she will be reported immediately to the legal authorities and will be placed on indefinite suspension or dismissed from Stevens. In the event of loss of residence, suspension, or expulsion, tuition and all other fees are non-refundable.

Health Risks of Substance Use and Abuse
The use of tobacco, alcohol, and/or other drugs can have negative health implications and can often result in chronic physical ailments and chemical dependency, as well as permanent injury or death. While the specific physical and psychological effects of drug abuse and addiction tend to vary based on the particular substance involved, the general effects of abuse or addiction to any drug can be devastating. Psychologically, intoxication with or withdrawal from a substance can cause everything from euphoria as with alcohol, Ecstasy, or inhalant intoxication, to paranoia with marijuana or steroid intoxication, to severe depression or suicidal thoughts with cocaine or amphetamine withdrawal. In terms of effects on the body, intoxication with a substance can cause physical effects that range from marked sleepiness and slowed breathing as with intoxication with heroin or sedative hypnotic drugs, to the rapid heart rate of cocaine intoxication, or the tremors to seizures of alcohol withdrawal.
What follows is a summary of the health effects and risks associated with various illicit drugs.
Substance Abuse - All students and employees should be aware that the use of tobacco, alcohol, and/or other drugs can have negative health implications and can often result in chronic physical ailments and chemical dependency, as well as permanent injury or death.
Alcoholic Beverages Whether in the form of beer, wine or liquor, alcohol is a mind-altering chemical that has effects similar to barbiturates and narcotics. Alcohol acts as a depressant to the central nervous system. Even though small amounts of alcohol can produce mild relaxation and a feeling of well being, alcohol affects each individual in different ways. Alcohol can cause intoxication, sedation, unconsciousness, or death.
Hangovers are probably the best-known sign of too much alcohol in the body. They are caused by the body's reaction to the toxic, or poisonous, effects of alcohol. Often those effects can occur at very low levels of drinking.
Alcohol consumption causes a number of marked changes in behavior. Even low doses significantly impair the judgment and coordination required to drive a car safely, increasing the likelihood that the driver will be involved in an accident. Low to moderate doses of alcohol also increase the incidence of a variety of aggressive acts, including domestic violence and date rape. Moderate to high doses of alcohol cause marked impairments in higher mental functions, severely altering a person’s ability to learn and remember information. Very high doses may cause respiratory depression and death. If combined with other depressants of the central nervous system, much lower doses of alcohol will produce the aforementioned effects.
Repeated use of alcohol can lead to dependence. Sudden cessation of alcohol intake is likely to produce withdrawal systems, including severe anxiety, tremors, hallucinations, and convulsions. Alcohol withdrawal can be life threatening. Long-term consumption of large quantities of alcohol, particularly when combined with poor nutrition, can also lead to permanent damage to vital organs such as the brain and the liver.
Mothers who drink alcohol during pregnancy may give birth to infants with fetal alcohol syndrome. These infants have irreversible physical abnormalities and mental retardation. In addition, research indicates that children of alcoholic parents are at greater risk of becoming alcoholics.
Here are some facts regarding alcohol poisoning, blood alcohol levels, and binge drinking:
Signs of Alcohol Poisoning:
- Slurred speech
- Incoherent, unresponsive and/or unconscious speech
- Numbness (does not react when pinched)
- Skin becomes pale, blue, cold, and/or clammy
- Breathing becomes irregular, slow or shallow
Steps to Take:
Check for attentiveness (does person respond to her/his name; pinch skin).
Do not leave the person alone.
Turn the person on her/his side to prevent airway blockage if s/he vomits.
Call for help; seek medical attention.
Blood Alcohol Level (BAL)
The first consistent mood or behavioral changes occur when the blood alcohol level (BAL) reaches 0.05%. This level is reached by a 150 lb. person taking two drinks in an hour. The person might feel relaxed and have a sense of well-being. However, the alcohol has already begun to affect their reflexes, vision, coordination, ability to concentrate, judgment, and restraint. This interferes with their ability to operate a car or other machinery safely.
At a BAL of 0.10 - 0.20%, the alcohol further impairs a person's motor functions. Walking and hand and arm coordination are clearly affected. The person is likely to be clumsy. Reaction times increase greatly; that is, the person does not respond to stimuli as quickly. The drug seriously hampers reasoning and judgment. Most states consider a person legally intoxicated when they have a BAL of 0.10%.
At a BAL of 0.30 - 0.40%, alcohol further affects the centers of the brain, which control response to stimuli and understanding. The person is probably in a stupor. Though possibly aware, they will not understand what they hear or see.
A BAL above 0.30% is very dangerous. Alcohol blocks the brain's ability to control breathing and heart beat. This can result in unconsciousness and possible death. A person with a BAL of 0.30% should receive immediate medical care.
Heavy Drinking and Its Social Effects Heavy episodic or "high risk" drinking was first brought to national attention in 1993 by the Harvard School of Public Health College Alcohol Study, and has become the focus of extensive media coverage. Defined as five (5) drinks in one drinking session for men (four drinks for women), one or more times in a two week period, binge, or high-risk, drinking is referred to by the Harvard researchers as the most serious health hazard confronting American colleges and universities.
Other Physical Effects
Each year, alcohol is involved in more than half of the auto accidents in the U.S. Even a B.A.L. of 0.03% can impair a person's ability to drive or operate machinery safely.
Any amount of alcoholic consumed while pregnant may cause severe damage to the developing fetus.
Heavy, prolonged or excessive drinking can lead to malnutrition, cancer, psychological problems, miscarriages and infertility in women, impotency and sterility in men.
Liver - 95% of all alcohol is metabolized by the liver. Because clearing alcohol out of the body is a "priority," the other functions of the liver, such as regulating blood glucose levels, is slowed.
Stomach - Alcohol causes a surge in the flow of digestive acids that can irritate the stomach lining. Nausea and vomiting frequently occur, while regular heavy drinking causes ulcers and chronic stomach problems.
Heart - Alcohol makes the heart work harder and less efficiently. Long-term heavy drinking is associated with heart muscle disease, irregular heartbeats and an increased risk of coronary artery disease.
Marijuana - Marijuana is a drug taken to produce a euphoric feeling and a state of relaxation. The short term effects of marijuana include distortion of time perception, increased heart rates, dilation of the blood vessels, and loss of short-term memory. Visual perception and psychomotor skills are also decreased which have adverse effects on driving ability. The effects of long-term use include loss of motivation, chronic bronchitis, decreased lung capacity, and an increased risk of lung cancer. In men, marijuana use has caused lower levels of the sex hormone testosterone, and an increase in abnormal sperm.
Cocaine - Cocaine is a powerful stimulant. The drug's immediate effect is to create a feeling that is often described as euphoric. It creates increased alertness, suppresses appetite and temporarily relieves depression. Studies indicate cocaine's effects on the body and psyche are dangerous and that some damage may be irreversible. The least harmful effects are nosebleeds and nasal erosions that result from irritation of the lining of the nose when the drug is inhaled. Most dangerous are the "coke blues" which are the intense downs that occur, often after a high, and result in the user trying other drugs to relieve the physical and emotional discomfort. There is a strong psychological dependence to cocaine which slowly accumulates as tolerance to the drug builds. Long-term use of cocaine can cause paranoia, sexual dysfunction, and deep depression.
Ecstasy or MDMA (methylenedioxymethamphetamine) - Ecstasy is a stimulant that combines the properties of methamphetamine or "speed" with mind-altering or hallucinogenic properties. It has been billed as the "perfect drug" by users because it can induce enhancing thinking, coordination, and empathy. Because of many different recipes used to manufacture Ecstasy, deaths have been caused by substances added during production of the drug. Users are at particular risk of heat exhaustion and dehydration with physical exertion. Long-term use has been shown to cause brain damage.
Special K (ketamine hydrochloride) - Ketamine hydrochloride is primarily used in veterinary medicine. Human users experience hallucinations and can experience a loss of time and identity. Ketamine can cause delirium, amnesia, impaired motor function, high blood pressure, depression, recurrent flashbacks, and potentially fatal respiratory problems.
LSD - LSD is a potent hallucinogen derived from a fungus that grows on rye and other grains, the effects of LSD are unpredictable. A "bad trip" can be terrifying, including frightening thoughts and feelings, fear of losing control, fear of insanity, and death. Chronic users may experience flashbacks and visual hallucinations long after use of the drug has stopped.
Rohypnol ("Roofie") - Rohypnol is a strong sedative (flunitrazepam), commonly referred to as the "date rape" drug, causes extreme drowsiness, and can cause deep sedation and amnesia. This drug is particularly dangerous, especially when combined with alcohol or other drugs, because of its sedative effects. It may have a paradoxical effect and cause aggression in some users.
GHB (gamma hydroxybutyrate) - GHB is also referred to as a "date rape" drug. It is a central nervous system depressant which produces intoxication, followed by deep sedation. GHB can cause nausea, vomiting, delusions, depression, seizures, loss of consciousness, and coma. When combined with alcohol or other drugs, the potential for deadly overdose increases dramatically.
Stimulants - Caffeine is the most widely used stimulant and can be found in coffee, tea, soda and cold medications. Amphetamines are known as "speed and uppers". Stimulants increase awareness, keep people awake and depress the appetite. Short term effects include elevated blood pressure, nervousness, and hyperactivity. Long term effects include insomnia, malnutrition, and acute psychosis.
Tobacco - Tobacco contains nicotine, another central nervous system stimulant. Use of tobacco can cause heart disease, lung cancer, emphysema, and other diseases. Use of tobacco by pregnant women is linked to higher incidence of stillborn and premature infants and low birth weights in infants. Some studies indicate that the children of women who smoke while pregnant have an increased risk for developing conduct disorders.
Depressants - Downers and depressants include Qualudes, barbiturates and tranquilizers. These drugs reduce anxiety, induce sleep, and promote relaxation. Used together, they can be extremely dangerous and can suppress the central nervous system enough to cause death. Downers cause slowed response time, loss of rational judgment, decreased coordination, and loss of motor skills. Driving skills are seriously affected. Tolerance and physical dependence often develop.
Hallucinogens - Hallucinogens include LSD, mescaline, and PCP. They promote dream-like perceptions and panic reactions that produce horrifying perceptions. PCP is particularly dangerous and can cause a person to become violent to her/him and others.
Narcotic Analgesics - These drugs include opium, morphine, heroin, and codeine. They relieve pain without the loss of consciousness. Narcotics can cause physical dependence to develop over a short period of time. Too much of a narcotic can cause the body to stop breathing. Intravenous narcotic use is associated with increased risk of AIDS and hepatitis.
Inhalants - The immediate negative effects of inhalants include nausea, sneezing, coughing, nosebleeds, fatigue, lack of coordination, and loss of appetite. Solvents and aerosol sprays also decrease heart rate and respiration, and impair judgment. Long-term use can result in permanent damage to the nervous system. High concentration of inhalants can cause disorientation, violent behavior, unconsciousness, or death.
Steroids - Steroids are drugs that resemble the male sex hormone testosterone. Popular since the 1950's, steroids have been used by athletes and body builders to increase muscle mass and improve athletic performance. Taken in high doses, steroids can cause psychological dependence, increased anger, aggression, and depression, and will stunt growth in adolescents who have not attained full height. Men may experience nipple and breast growth, shrunken testicles, and baldness. All users are at risk for hepatitis, liver cancer, an altered sex drive, and AIDS.
