Harm reduction

12.4% of UM students have never used alcohol*

55.9% of UM students have not used marijuana in the past year*

"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.
