Prescription Drug Abuse Counseling in College

prescription drug abuse counseling

prescription drug abuse counseling is becoming a serious issue on campuses nationwide. Many students are using ADHD drugs to help them concentrate before big exams.

Misuse of attention deficit drugs has become a problem on campuses, and colleges are reconsidering how — and even if — their student health offices should try to diagnose A.D.H.D.

American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight:

Substance abuse of ADHD medication is now on the rise at universities as students try to get a jolt of focus for exams.  Students with ADHD need it to focus and are frustrated with the universities sudden stomp on ADHD medication.   This is making it harder for student who actually need the medication to get the treatment they need.   This leads to many students with ADHD not being able to study and receiving poorer grades because of it.   This is a case where the drug use is not a victimless crime.    It is making it harder for students that actually need their medication.

In order to help these students with their addictions you must become a substance abuse counselor.    By taking online courses you can earn a certification in substance abuse counseling quick and easy.    With courses being self paced and available year round, you can start anytime.
