STUDENT SERVICES -- Substance Abuse

In accordance with the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989, NOVA supports efforts to eliminate drug and alcohol abuse through a series of programs and services designed to prevent use of substances that are illegal and harmful and to assist individuals who suffer from substance abuse.

The use of drugs and the abuse of alcohol can endanger your health and your future. If you or someone you know needs help, contact the Counseling Center at any of the campuses for information about referral to community agencies.

The illegal possession, use, or distribution of controlled substances may result in legal sanctions including imprisonment and fines. Such conduct by students on campus can also result in the College taking disciplinary action as stated in the Student Handbook.
