Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program

East Carolina University clearly prohibits the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees on its property or as a part of any of its activities.

The Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations [Edgar Part 86] of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 requires that institutions of higher education provide students and employees with a copy of the written policies and laws related to drugs and alcohol.

The Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program (DAAPP) is an informational document that outlines applicable laws, health risks associated with drug and alcohol use, available resources, and University Substance Use Policies for students and/or employees, please use the listed links below to review the contents of the DAAPP.
