2019 Alcohol, Other Drug, and Campus Violence Prevention Conference: A NASPA Strategies Conference

January 17 – January 19, 2019
Washington, DC

Alcohol and other drug abuse is a barrier to student success and degree attainment. Higher education professionals committed to prevention, campus safety, and intervention services at their institutions know that sustainable change cannot be accomplished alone—it takes intentional partnerships and collaborative efforts. This is why taking the time to gather as a field, learn from each other, and evolve collaborative prevention strategies together is so critical.

About

The Monitoring the Future survey reveals troubling statistics, specifically with regard to the pervasiveness of binge drinking among college-aged adults:

  • About 6% of college students smoke marijuana daily (or near daily).
  • About 4% used amphetamines in the last 30 days.
  • Binge drinking is the most troubling, with about 28-34% indulging in the last two-week period.

A Particular Brand of Danger

Prevention practitioners know that substance abuse, both alcohol and other drug , is a primary barrier to student success and academic achievement. Substance abuse has a particular brand of danger among the list of factors that can take students from promise to dropout. Unlike other high-risk behaviors, substance abuse has significant and lasting impact on brain chemistry, including the complication of addiction, as well as being a root cause of so many other related challenges like mental health issues, negative socialization patterns, and serious physical health repercussions, both long-term and the tragedies that result from binge consumption.

This is why

Higher education professionals committed to prevention, campus safety, and intervention services at their institutions know that real change cannot be accomplished alone—it takes the kind of intentional partnerships and collaborative efforts that are so challenging to make happen with all resources dedicated to our own functions. This is why taking the time to gather as a field, learn from each other, and evolve collaborative prevention strategies together is so critical.

The 2019 NASPA Alcohol, Other Drug, and Campus Violence Prevention Conference will offer the opportunity to:

  • learn cutting-edge prevention and response practices (and evaluate their results);
  • examine the evolving challenges and pitfalls that undermine successful intervention at the individual and community level;
  • and better understand who at your institution is a critical partner in your work, gaining proven methods for making the cross-departmental connections that transform institutional culture around substance abuse and campus violence.

Why Strategies Top 3:

  1. Collect your continuing education credits (including CHES) at the largest prevention and student health focused event in higher education.
  2. The benefit of gathering practitioners from all sectors of institutional health and wellness is the centering of integrative, systemic approaches in much of the learning—with potential partners on campus-wide solutions sitting across the table.
  3. Gain exposure (or even create your own customized deep-dive track) to a sector of health and wellness that you are passionate about, but may not relate to your current job function. Or, perhaps your role was recently expanded to include a new function and you need a crash course? Your registration gets you full access to all programming of the four events making up the NASPA Strategies Conferences.
Join us at the 2019 NASPA Alcohol, Other Drug, and Campus Violence Prevention Conference.

Rates increase December 12.

The Role of Prevention in Addressing Opioid Overdose

Wednesday, January 16th • 02.00 PM – 05.00 PM

Prevention plays a critical role in addressing the nation's opioid crisis yet engaging in efforts to prevent opioid misuse and opioid overdoses specifically may be new territory for many prevention practitioners. To support efforts in this area, prevention practitioners must understand the factors that increase an individual's risk for overdose, as well as the range of prevention strategies available to address these factors. Thus, after defining opioid overdose as a growing public health problem, this session will provide an overview of the factors known to elevate risk for opioid overdose and introduce interventions shown to lower that risk.
