Drug and Alcohol Prevention Program

Ameritech College is committed to an alcohol, tobacco, and drug-free learning and working environment, and adheres to the responsibilities set forth in applicable local, state, and federal laws. All members of the College community, visitors, and guests are required to comply.

Ameritech  provides education and prevention resources related to the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. The College utilizes educational strategies to increase awareness of drug, alcohol, or tobacco use. The College reserves the right to refuse any advertising or promotional activities that focus on the consumption of alcoholic beverages, tobacco, or drugs that might encourage use or abuse.

For the benefit of our students, faculty, and staff, the College complies with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1986, as well as the State of Utah’s Substance Abuse & Drug Free Workplace Policy (Rule R477-14).

In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), each postsecondary institution in the United States that participates in Title IV student aid programs must annually distribute, in writing, to each student and each employee, information about the Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program. Please take a few minutes to review these valuable documents. If you have any questions, faculty and staff may contact the Human Resources Office and students may contact the Director of Student Services.
