Drug and Alcohol Use
Not everyone in college will drink alcohol or use drugs but if you are going to drink alcohol or take drugs, be safe:
A standard drink is half pint of lager or a small glass of wine or a pub measure of spirts. In a week a safe limit of drinking is; for men 17 standard drinks or less, for women it is 11 standard drinks or less. This is not a drinking target. These drinks are meant to be spread throughout the week, with at least two-three alcohol-free days. Above these levels can have harmful effects.
Remember: If you are concerned about a substance that you or a friend have taken don’t take anymore, don’t take other drugs and seek medical advice.
