Alcohol and drugs

Within university student culture there can be a lot of pressure to drink alcohol to excess and experiment with drugs. This can have a serious impact on physical health, behaviour and psychological well-being so it's important to be aware of the facts. If you are concerned about yourself or a friend please remember that there is plenty of support available at BU, you can also find useful information online at drinkaware, DrugScopeFRANK and Rehab 4 Addiction.

It's important to recognise that not every person fits into one pattern of symptoms, and that drugs and alcohol can impact people in a variety of ways. The earlier the problem is addressed the less likely that drugs and alcohol are to cause serious harm to your health.
