List and explain atleast 4 factors that contribute to high levels of alcohol anda drug abuse on college campuses.
High levels of alcohol and drug abuse on college campuses can be attributed to many factors some of which includes the following;
Stress. As students are facing the high demands of coursework, part-time jobs, internships, social obligations and more, many turns to drugs as a way to cope up with such situations.
Course load. More students than ever are taking stimulants, such as Adderall, to help them stay awake long enough to study or complete assignments by their due dates. All too often, these prescription drugs are obtained without a legitimate prescription and ultimately creates addiction.
Curiosity. College students are exploring many new aspects of their lives in personal and professional realms. It’s not uncommon for that self-exploration to dip into drug experimentation.
Peer pressure. College students who are surrounded by other people experimenting with recreational and performance-enhancing drugs are more likely to try these substances for themselves.
