Alcohol & Substance Misuse Resources

Stress, course load, curiosity, and peer pressure are all reasons college students might use drugs and alcohol. Studies by the Journal of the American Medical Association show that alcohol and substance abuse are closely linked with anxiety and depression. Drugs and alcohol are often used to self-medicate and ease the symptoms of undiagnosed mental health issues, often leading to even worse symptoms.

If you or someone you know need help with alcohol or substance misuse, use the following information to access screenings, and find a treatment provider and local resources in the Tulsa community.
