As part of a large multi-site intervention study funded by SAMSA to study how to prevent the abuse of alcohol and other drugs, a mail survey (U.S. mail and messenger mail) was conducted to identify prevalence and patterns of substance use, attitudes towards substance use, and knowledge and use of substance use-related health services among full-time faculty and classified staff of a large university. The sample was randomly selected. Participation was voluntary, anonymous, and confidential. Special measures were incorporated to assure confidentiality, encourage participation, and track differential response.
