Drug Abuse Prevention

In accordance with the Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988, 41 U.S.C. § 701 and the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989, 20 U.S.C. § 1145g. The Academy promotes a drug-free learning environment. The manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession, sale, purchase, offer to buy or sell, or use of alcohol, illegal drugs or related paraphernalia and the illegal use of any drugs (including the misuse of prescription drug) at The Academy or while engaged in the course curriculum is strictly prohibited. The Academy also prohibits such conduct during non-curriculum time to the extent that, in the judgment of The Academy, it impairs a student’s ability to progress through the curriculum, threatens the reputation for integrity of The Academy or violates the law. Students who use prescription drugs should follow the prescribing physician’s directions for use and all prescriptions are to be kept in the prescription bottle with the appropriate name of the user. If use of a prescription drug may impair your performance or affect safety while performing course-related services, you should notify the Academy Director immediately so that The Academy can take whatever action it finds appropriate to protect your safety and that of other students and clients. Any student who violates this policy is subject to suspension or expulsion from The Academy.
