Alcohol Abuse Prevention at Northern

  • This international association of college and university-based peer education programs focuses on alcohol abuse prevention and other related student health and safety issues.  Among the resources available on this site are a catalog of prevention materials, a monthly newsletter and a conference calendar.
 
  • Here's where you'll find comprehensive information on how big the impaired driving problem really is but also what steps you can take to prevent it and what you can do to actually make a positive difference in your community.
 
  • The e-Chug (electronic Check-Up to Go) is an interactive web survey that allows college and university students to enter information about your drinking patterns and receive feedback about your use of alcohol.  The confidential assessment takes about 6-7 minutes to complete, is self-guided, and requires no face-to-face contact time with a counselor or administrator.
     

Hosted by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), this site contains a national database of college alcohol policies and literature designed for specific target audiences (students, parents, college administrators, etc.).  It also includes an interactive body page where visitors to the site can learn about the effects of alcohol on various organs and body systems.
 

 
  • The HadEnough project is a media and advocacy campaign focused on supporting student involvement to reduce binge drinking on college campuses.  The project promotes fundamental change in the campus drinking environment and is designed for the “silent majority” of students who don’t drink excessively, are fed up with the problems caused by those who do, and want to do something about it.
