Program Details

With regard to substance use, the personal feedback, used in conjunction with counseling, or as a stand-alone intervention, includes information that has been shown to be particularly motivating to high school and college-aged young adults:

  • Quantity and Frequency of Use
  • Amount Consumed
  • Normative Comparisons
  • Physical Health Information
  • Amount and Percent of Income Spent
  • Negative Consequences Feedback
  • Explanation, Advice, and Local Referral Information

The Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO is a brief intervention. Participants can complete the questions and receive their personalized feedback in about 5-10 minutes.

Because it is brief and personalized to the respondent’s current behaviors, individuals can complete a “check-up” on multiple occasions to track changes in use and risk behavior.

The Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO can be completed completely anonymously. When completed anonymously, your respondents can answer honestly and receive more-accurate feedback knowing that their answers are safe and non-identifiable.

Numerous published peer reviewed outcome studies conducted across various communities consistently demonstrate that the Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO significantly reduces drinking and negative consequences.

The Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO Program is recognized as a highly-effective, low-cost intervention by NIAAA.

Research studies using the Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO program have demonstrated reductions in:

  • Drinks per week
  • Average BAC
  • Highest drinking episode BAC
  • Alcohol consequences
  • Drinking to intoxication

The Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO can provide quick, confidential feedback in multiple settings. It is often implemented both as a population level prevention as well as a targeted individual intervention by the same institution.

Additionally, the program has been customized for different populations including high school students, college students, adults in the general population, and military service members.
