School or post-secondary education can be both rewarding and difficult. Dealing with increasing work load expectations and navigating social networks can be challenging for anyone. Substance use can be both a reaction to these changes and a source of extra challenges at school or on campus. Young people may also encounter or try substance for the first time at school or on campus.
