Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis explores trends and perceptions surrounding nonmedical use of prescription stimulants by university students throughout the United States. Furthermore, this study evaluated how universities in Oregon have responded to increased rates of nonmedical prescription stimulant use on campuses across the country. The following research questions are addressed: 1) What are students’ perceptions about their own prescription cognitive stimulant use? 2) How do students who do not use cognitive stimulants perceive other students’ use of these drugs? 3) What is the role of counselors and physicians on campus in educating university students about nonmedical use of prescription cognitive stimulants? 4) Do regulations imposed by universities and the legal system have any influence on students’ use of prescription cognitive stimulants? 5) Are the resources available to students at universities in Oregon well-developed to educate and prevent nonmedical use of prescription cognitive stimulants? This study was limited to the scope of published literature on the topic, and further research still needs to be done to accurately identify potential areas for improved education and regulation relating to prescription stimulant use.
