KCTCS Substance Abuse Policy

KCTCS is committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for its students, faculty, and staff. KCTCS has defined conduct in relation to the unlawful possession, use, dispensation, distribution, or manufacture of alcohol or illicit drugs. Conduct which is in violation of this definition poses unacceptable risks and disregard for the health, safety, and welfare of members of the KCTCS community and shall result in disciplinary action up to and including suspension or termination.

As a recipient of federal grants and contracts, KCTCS gives this notice to students, faculty, and staff that it is in compliance with, and shall continue to be in compliance with the Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act Amendment of 1989. Students, faculty and staff are herein notified of the standards of conduct which shall be applicable while on KCTCS property, on KCTCS business, and/or at KCTCS sponsored activities.

Training and Counseling Resources

Continuous efforts are made to make students, faculty, and staff aware of the off-campus programs which provide information and professional services on matters related to the abuse of alcohol and drugs.

Other counseling, treatment, and rehabilitation services are available in the communities throughout the state in which KCTCS employees are located. The Career and Academic Planning center on the north campus has some information available to students on community resources that can assist students with these services.

Many other services are available and may be located by looking in the local phone directory yellow pages under "Social Services" or "Alcoholism" or in the "Community Service Guide" section at the front of the telephone directory.
