Drug Testing

Morrisville State College is concerned with the health, safety and welfare of the student athletes who participate in its programs and represent the college in competitive athletics. Substance abuse is one of the most important issues facing athletics and society today. The use of illegal drugs, misuse of legal drugs and dietary supplements, use of performance-enhancing substances, use of alcohol and inappropriate use of tobacco are inconsistent with the standards expected of student-athletes at Morrisville State College. Substance use and abuse in sport can pose risks to a student-athlete’s health/safety and negatively affect his/her academic and athletic performance. Substance use and abuse in sport may also compromise the integrity of athletic competition and the ideals of
Morrisville State College.
 
The Athletic Department believes that random drug testing and testing based on reasonable suspicion are appropriate to ensure the health, safety and welfare of our student-athletes, to promote fair competition in intercollegiate athletics, to affirm compliance with applicable rules and regulations on drug and alcohol abuse, to identify student-athletes who are improperly using drugs or alcohol and to assist them before they harm themselves or others. Furthermore, the Athletic Department recognizes its responsibility to provide educational programming that will support a positive decision making process.
 
The intent of these policies is to prevent substance use and abuse by student-athletes through education, testing, and professional guidance.
  • Education – providing student-athletes and athletic staff with accurate information about the problems associated with substance use in sport, promoting health and safety in sport;
  • Testing – analyzing biological specimens to detect prohibited substances student-athletes may introduce to their bodies and associated sanctions resulting from use detailed in this policy; and
  • Professional Referral – facilitating appropriate treatment and rehabilitation of student athletes.
