Drug and alcohol abuse prevention

Do you or someone you know have a problem with alcohol or other drugs?

Wayne State University understands the serious impact drug and alcohol abuse can have on its students, faculty, and staff.  Accordingly, WSU is committed to ensuring drug and alcohol abuse awareness for our community.  To further promote this awareness, WSU has developed and implemented a comprehensive drug and alcohol abuse prevention program (DAAPP).  The program addresses standards of conduct, treatment options, violations, sanctions, and resources.
