NHTI is committed to providing an environment that encourages and promotes healthy lifestyle choices.
Meeting the social and academic demands of college can be challenging. At times, recreational use of substances can seem like an appealing way to cope.
Some people view college as a natural time to try substances, whether it is legal or not. But for others, substance use can lead to serious physical and mental health problems.
If you or someone one you know is facing mental and/or substance use disorders please review the following resources.
