This document describes a Northern Arizona University (NAU) program, Project Daylight, which is a comprehensive intervention and prevention program for alcohol and substance abuse problems on campus. The project involves the entire University community and is designed to be a total, comprehensive strategy. It involves faculty education, staff and student leadership training, counseling and intervention services, support groups, and wellness education. The design of the wellness education component is organized around the traditional medicine wheel symbol with eight wellness program areas for the general student population. The use of that symbol and other aspects of the program takes direction from the Native American culture as the student population includes many American Indians. Included in the description are a report listing statutes authorizing the project, plan of operation, needs assessment, key personnel, resources, evaluation, and the uniqueness of the program. Included as an appendix are copies of student surveys for 1989-1992, and three brochures for Project Daylight describing recreation activities at the NAU campus, services available through Project Daylight, and student comments on how they meet friends, socialize, and deal with peer pressure to drink and use illegal drugs.
