Substance Use among University Students at the St Augustine Campus of The University of the West Indies

Issue: 
Pages: 
641–9
Synopsis: 
Substance use is a significant health risk, particularly among university students. This study assesses substance use at The University of the West Indies, St Augustine. We conclude that the extent and problems created by substance use are significant and recommend targeted interventions.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Substance use and abuse is a well known public health risk that peaks in persons between 18 and 25 years of age and is prevalent among university students. While this has been repeatedly documented in developed nations, there have been limited studies in the English-speaking Caribbean. This study therefore sought to assess the prevalence of alcohol, tobacco and marijuana use among university students in the English-speaking Caribbean and any associated risk factors.
