It is well-documented that substance use is often a coping mechanism for survivors of childhood traumas including child sexual abuse (CSA; Calmes, 2013). Although having a history of CSA does not necessarily lead to substance use in college students, previous research supports that there is a strong association between childhood trauma and substance use. Prevalence, assessment, treatment, and research on substance use among college students who survived CSA will be explored using case examples and discussion.
