Reducing Alcohol Use in First-Year University Students: Evaluation of a Web-Based Personalized Feedback Program
Doumas, Diana M.; Andersen, Lorna L.
Journal of College Counseling, v12 n1 p18 Spr 2009
The efficacy of a Web-based personalized feedback program--electronic CHECKUP TO GO (e-CHUG), aimed at reducing heavy drinking in 1st-year university students--is evaluated. Results indicated that high-risk students in the e-CHUG group reported significantly greater reductions in weekly drinking quantity, frequency of drinking to intoxication, and occurrence of alcohol-related problems. Recommendations for integrating Web-based alcohol programs into a comprehensive prevention program are discussed. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
