Each state and locality has laws relating to the unlawful manufacture, sale, use or possession of controlled (and/or imitation of) controlled substances and alcohol. In addition, states and localities have laws relating to driving while intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol and/or illicit drugs. Sanctions for violations may range from a citation to arrest, jail terms and/or imprisonment, depending on the nature of the violation and past criminal history of the individual.

Federal law considers the manufacture, distribution, sale, possession or use of drugs or any controlled substance a serious crime.

Other penalties could include forfeiture of personal and real property used to possess or to facilitate possession of a controlled substance, denial of certain federal benefits, and revocation of certain federal licenses. Certain federal laws may apply to unlawful manufacture, distribution, sale, possession, and trafficking of alcohol, as well. Penalties range from fines to jail terms and/or imprisonment.

Health and safety risks of drug and alcohol use
Alcohol health and safety risks

Alcohol use affects every organ in the drinker’s body and can damage a developing fetus. Intoxication can impair brain function and motor skills; heavy use can increase the risk of certain cancers, stroke and liver disease. Safety risks include accidents resulting from driving while under the influence, increased incidents of rapes and assaults, and fatalities.

Substance abuse health and safety risks

Substance abuse may result in a wide array of serious health and behavioral problems. Long term use of drugs can lead to malnutrition, organ damage, and psychological problems. Overdose is a risk for all drugs. It can result in coma, convulsions, psychosis or death. The risk of AIDS and other diseases is heightened if drugs are injected.

Vaccinations

Redstone College is not a public institution, therefor we are not required to maintain a Vaccination Policy for our students; however, in the interest of public health, we do not want this to be construed as discouraging any student, employee, or staff member from voluntarily participating in routine vaccinations as recommendations by and according to the guidance of their local public health care agency.

HOUSING

Our housing coordinator helps students arrange safe, affordable housing in nearby apartments or rental homes. This often allows students of the same age, gender, and school program to share housing costs, carpool to and from school and develop new friendships.

Independent housing

We realize that our students have unique housing needs. Some would like the cost efficiency and comradery of shared housing, while other would prefer independent housing.

Independent housing can be ideal for older students, couples, families, tenants with pets and those who prefer no roommates.

Shared housing options are ideal for those looking for the most cost-effective form of living and have some flexibility.
