Drug and Alcohol Abuse Resources

Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology supports a healthy learning involvement conducive to academic excellence, and understands that, according to research; alcohol and drug abuse may provide negative consequences and hinder students in achieving their academic goals. Because of this, the college publishes and supports an alcohol and drug policy, not intended to hinder a students’ freedom, but instead to ensure a healthier and safer college experience. View Alcohol and Drug Policy.

Students that are found in-violation of the alcohol and drug policy may face a variety of educational sanctions, designed to increase their understanding of alcohol and drug abuse. While every incident is different, students that continue to violate the alcohol and drug policies may face stricter sanctions including housing suspension, or college suspension and expulsion. View Sanctions.

Any student that feels that they, or a classmate, may have a dependency on alcohol or drugs and is worried about their health, safety, or academic progress, should seek out a member of the student affairs department for resources, or check out any of the local resources below:
