Movies and TV portray alcohol and drug use as synonymous with college. Little wonder then that incoming students often expect (and their parents fear) that their educational experience will be one big party. But what is the reality? How common are underage drinking and drugs in college? And just how much fun awaits the student \u2014 and how much trouble? Addiction expert David Sack, MD, takes on these questions and more in a Reddit \u201cAsk Me Anything\u201d forum set for Sept. 12, 2016. It\u2019s your chance to go beyond the hype and discover what\u2019s really happening on campuses today from an authority whose experience includes decades of helping teens and young adults with drug and alcohol problems as the chief medical officer of Promises Behavioral Health, a nationwide addiction and mental health treatment network. Perhaps, for example, you\u2019re heading off to college soon and wondering: \tWhat drugs are most popular on campus these days? Is it all weed and beer? Or are drugs like meth, cocaine and heroin in the mix? \tDo study drugs really work? And am I going to be at a disadvantage if I don\u2019t take them? \tWhich drugs are most and least addictive? \tAm I doomed to be a social pariah if I\u2019m trying to stay sober while I\u2019m at college? Or perhaps you\u2019re a parent who\u2019s wondering: \tWhat should I make sure my kid understands about drugs and alcohol before they head off to college? \tWhat substance use trends going on right now are the most dangerous? \tAm I right to be more worried about the potential of my child using drugs than alcohol? \tWhat are some red flags that will warn me my college student is having problems with drugs or alcohol? No matter where your curiosity leads concerning college drug and alcohol use, Dr. Sack promises a straightforward look at its realities. So get your questions ready and join the conversation.
