Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program (DAAPP)
The Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989, requires that any institution of higher education that receives federal financial assistance must adopt and implement a program to prevent the use of illicit drugs and alcohol abuse by students and employees (34 CFR 86.1). The University’s drug prevention program must include, at a minimum, an annual distribution in writing to all students and employees, and a biennial review to assess the effectiveness of the program and implement changes. The annual distribution to students and employees must include the standards of conduct, a description of applicable legal sanctions under local, State, and Federal law, a description of the health risks, a description of any educational resources and treatment options, and a clear statement from the University (34 CFR 86.100).
