Alcohol Abuse Resources For Florida College Students

The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that in 2015, approximately 32% of all college students participated in binge drinking in a typical two-week period. Needless to say, college students consume alcohol at unusually high rates and have increased odds of engaging in binge drinking. Not only can increased alcohol consumption affect classwork, relationships, and athletics, it can also have long-lasting impacts on health and even cause death when alcohol poisoning causes basic life-support functions to shut down.

This page provides Florida college students with a comprehensive resource page that can be used to find physical locations for alcohol addiction treatment as well as online resources that can be used for educational purposes.
