Screening and Brief Interventions for Alcohol Use in College Health Centers: A Review
Seigers, Danielle K. L.; Carey, Kate B.
Journal of American College Health, v59 n3 p151-158 Nov 2010
Objectives: To provide a critical review of the efficacy of brief interventions for alcohol use in college health centers. Methods: Studies were included if (a) they examined brief intervention trials that were conducted in college- or university-based student health centers or emergency departments, and (b) they provided pre-post data to estimate change. Results: Twelve studies suggested that screening and brief interventions in these settings are acceptable, feasible, and promote risk reduction. Conclusions: Findings support continued use of time-limited, single-session interventions with motivational interviewing and feedback components.
