The Maryland Collaborative to Reduce College Drinking and Related Problems
Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
The Collaborative brings together Maryland colleges to address the problem of excessive drinking and its consequences on their campuses and in their communities. College student drinking problems exact enormous social and economic costs for families, friends, and the community-at-large, including assaults, injuries, drunk driving, alcohol abuse and dependency, and death. Colleges and universities have a limited ability to address the problem without partnerships and collaborations at the local and state levels. The Collaborative is made up of colleges and universities that are willing to work together with community partners to reduce college alcohol use and create environments, policies and practices that support a safe and healthy college experience that prepares students to succeed in college and in the rest of their lives.
In the event of a mental health or substance use crisis, call to connect with a licensed counselor, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Bilingual support and medications to assist with recovery are available.
