MTSU Campus Resources

This page serves as a hub of resources at MTSU pertaining to substance use prevention and recovery for students, faculty, and staff. Check back here regularly for new initiatives across campus!


Campus Drug Take-Back Days

Once a semester, in October and April, the MTSU Campus Pharmacy hosts a campus-wide Drug Take-Back event. During this event students and staff can bring their unused, expired, or unnecessary medication to be disposed of properly by pharmacy personnel.

Did you know? Turning in unused medication not only prevents medication misuse from developing, but also prevents environmental pollution in local waterways.

Take-Back Day Amount Turned In
Fall 2023 61.7 lbs
Spring 2024 76.5 lbs


Social Norms Campaign

Research demonstrates that we tend to over-estimate the number of our peers making unhealthy choices and underestimate the number of our peers making healthy choices. Therefore, social norms campaigns can reduce misconceptions among college students and further encourage healthy choices.

In the spring of 2024, the Office of Prevention Science and Recovery launched a campus-wide social norms marketing campaign utilizing survey data from over 650 MTSU students. The campaign's 4 main areas of focus were vaping, mental health, binge drinking, and non-prescription substance use.
