NASPA Recognizes the eCHECKUP TO GO

Kevin Kruger, President of NASPA, says “with repeated controlled studies showing significant reductions in destructive alcohol use among college students completing the eCHECKUP TO GO (e-CHUG) online intervention, and with independent review articles acknowledging the effectiveness of the program, NASPA recognizes the eCHECKUP TO GO as a true evidence-based approach that is showing significant results.” Kevin goes on to say that “Given the breadth of mental health and campus community safety issues associated with alcohol abuse, NASPA encourages campuses to give serious consideration to including the eCHECKUP TO GO as a part of their comprehensive AOD prevention strategy.

Furthermore, NASPA has recognized the Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO (e-Chug) as a program that:

  • “works” and continues to meet the criteria for a NIAAA Tier 1 recommended approach
  • has been subjected to the greatest number of independent outcome evaluations
  • can last longer than other programs in terms of positive effects
