Drug and Alcohol Prevention Education
Southeastern Oklahoma State University believes that student success and achievement requires vigilance and effort on the part of the University to promote healthy living and learning. We affirm that we have a role in promoting an environment ,conducive to education, that actively discourages drug and alcohol abuse. We commit to prevention, developmental student conduct, and effective intervention for students at risk for these behaviors.
The Drug Free Schools and Campuses Regulations (34 CFR Part 86) of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA) require an institution of higher education to certify it has adopted and implemented programs to prevent the abuse of alcohol and use or distribution of illicit drugs both by students and employees, both on campus and as part of any institutional activities.
To explore the relevant institutional standards of conduct and sanctions, state and federal laws, health risks associated with alcohol and drug abuse, and programs in our community and the surrounding community that can assist you please review the links below:

Vector Solutions is an online educational program to address the unique challenges and responsibilities of college life for students surrounding alcohol and drugs. It also has an educational platform available to educate faculty and staff around substance use. Currently the program is utilized for sanctions related to drugs and alcohol. College Success instructors are made aware that the material may be utilized in their classes. The program is at no individual cost to the campus community.
Learn to Live is an online supplement to counseling services. It provides Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) programs to our students all over the United States. Students participate in self-guided modular programs, including Substance Use. They screen for risk and the program recommends modules based on screening results. Individuals may also choose to take a program without it being recommended on the screening. Students who need additional support may also reach out to a program coach for guidance and support.
