Background: Alcohol and illegal narcotics are two examples of psychoactive compounds that, when used incorrectly, can be damaging or hazardous. Continuous consumption of substances that are psychoactive can lead to dependence. Repeated use of psychoactive substances can result in dependence syndrome. Objective: To identify the impact of educational packages in enhancing the knowledge and practices of college students regarding prevention and management of substance use disorders. Study design and methods: The review will be conducted according to PRISMA guidelines. The International Prospective Register for Systematic Reviews has accepted this protocol. Following the three procedures, a literature search will be conducted on research articles published between 2011 and 2023 that are limited to the English language. A preliminary search will be made using PICO terms in the Science direct and PubMed-Medline databases. The titles and abstracts of the studies given will be combed for relevant keywords. The quality of all selected studies will be assessed using the JBI (Joanna Briggs Institute Manual) clinical appraisal checklist for RCTs and non-RCTs. Two authors will independently assess the quality of the work, and any discrepancies will be resolved. Results: A descriptive synthesis will be performed and presented in the form of a narrative summary as tabular format. The summaries will include both narrative descriptions and statistical data from the studies. The meta-analysis will be done for knowledge.Conclusion: This review will help the health care team to acknowledge the importance of incorporating educational packages in academics to make students competent to manage the conditions with substance abuse.
