Harm reduction

61% of UM students do not drink or have not consumed more than 4 drinks (female) or 5 drinks (male) in one sitting in the past 30 days.

Over half (64%) of UM students have not consumed cannabis in the past 12 months.

"Everyone drinks at university". This is false. However, a high perceived use might lead to students using substances when they are not comfortable. 

Harm reduction aims to reduce the risks associated with substance use. Harm reduction is person-focused and works with individuals to find options and approaches that work for them without judgement. Some examples include: alcohol guidelines, take home naloxone kits, not using, and safe needle disposal.
