CHOICES

CHOICES is a brief alcohol abuse prevention and harm reduction program for college students involving interactive journaling. The CHOICES program is presented in a non-confrontational manner that enables students to make their own decisions about alcohol consumption.

Throughout the 120-minute course, students will:

  • Participate in activities that engage the student and provide tools to make informed decisions about drinking
  • Be able to reflect on what they have learned as it relates to their choices about drinking
  • Be asked to apply what they have learned in a series of self-reflective questions
