What’s in your cup: The Five impacts of alcohol on your college life
General Risk Reduction Resources

Presented by:
Eric Smith: ecs0012@auburn.edu

Health Promotion and Wellness Services


This program will discuss the impacts of alcohol on individuals, chapters, and the community as a whole. Looking at the impacts of alcohol on an Auburn University student through a modern day lens will help students understand their risks.  This increased understanding will help students make better choices regarding personal health and safety, academic success, legal and campus policy implications, and financial costs. This program can be tailored to specific chapter needs as necessary.

 

The Auburn (Alcohol) Experience

Presented by: Auburn University Psychological Services Center/Health Behavior Assessment Center Staff (graduate students in Clinical Psychology program)

Ever wonder how much Auburn students report drinking? How many students play drinking games? Or what are some of the most commonly reported negative consequences of alcohol use. This program will provide a snapshot of the drinking behavior on campus as well as its impact on individuals and the Auburn community. Looking at the impact of alcohol on the Auburn family helps us understand the risks involved as well as how to make better choices regarding alcohol use.  Information about normative drinking rates, blood alcohol concentration, negative alcohol-related consequences, time and money spent drinking, and calories consumed from alcohol will be provided.  Additionally the session will discuss what the university is doing to help students make healthy decisions as well as tips to lower the risks associated with drinking.   

 

Your Drinking, Your Health

Presented by: Chris Correia, Ph.D., Department of Psychology

This program is designed to guide large groups through a “live”self-assessment and personalized feedback process. The program starts with each participant completing a brief and anonymous survey on their use of alcohol. Participants are then taught to score and interpret their results. Through this process each student learns how their individual drinking style impacts their health and overall functioning. Dr. Correia is a licensed clinical psychologist with over 15 years of experience studying substance use and addictive behaviors.  He is a faculty member in the Department of Psychology and provides clinical supervision for the Health Behavior Assessment Center.

NOTE: The price of this program is negotiable. Contact Dr. Correia (correcj@auburn.edu) for details.

 

Brief Interventions

Presented by: Auburn University Psychological Services Center/Health Behavior Assessment Center Staff (graduate students in Clinical Psychology program)

 

HBAC offers brief alcohol interventions that provides objective feedback and encourage positive changes in drinking behavior. We do NOT take a “JUST SAY NO" approach that requires abstaining from alcohol. Instead moderation and harm-reduction goals are stressed. The program is based on the Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS) curriculum, which is used on college campuses across the country and has been shown to be an effective intervention.  When delivered to individual students, BASICS consists of only two sessions: an alcohol use assessment and a feedback session.  A modified approach can also be delivered to small groups of students in a single session. Feedback consists of information about normative drinking rates, blood alcohol content, negative alcohol-related consequences, time and money spent drinking, and calories consumed from alcohol.  The interventionists are graduate clinicians enrolled in Auburn University’s Clinical Psychology program and are flexible and supportive rather than confrontational. Graduate clinicians are supervised by Dr. Chris Correia who is a licensed clinical psychologist with over 15 years of experience studying substance use and addictive behaviors.  He is also a faculty member in the Department of Psychology.

The price of this service is $80 per student. Contact Dr. Correia (correcj@auburn.edu) for details.
