About the ATOD Program

Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs logo

California State University, Long Beach is part of a surrounding community that influences students’ behavior. Therefore, in 2001, the CSULB Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs (ATOD) Program was established due in part to recommendations of the CSU Chancellor’s Office. These recommendations state that each campus should design appropriate programs for their institutions and for their student subgroups. Additionally in 1989, the Federal Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Act required all colleges and universities receiving funds to maintain alcohol and other drug prevention programs and to review their effectiveness at least every two years.

Mission

The mission of the Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs (ATOD) Program is to educate students about the potential negative consequences of drug and alcohol use and/or abuse. Through innovative programming, peer education, campus outreach, and community collaborations, the ATOD Program serves to create a harm-free environment in which students can achieve their academic goals and acquire skills necessary for life-long success.

Goals

The goals of the ATOD Program strives to create a campus climate that:

  • Reduces harm to students
  • Encourages dialogue regarding students’ behavior
  • Facilitates skill-building ad academic success
  • Demonstrates the diversity and unique qualities to provide valuable university opportunities.
