AlcoholEdu® for College is an educational online course about alcohol and other drug safety. It's completely confidential and individual student responses about alcohol and other drug behavior are not accessible by Reinhardt or any other party.
AlcoholEdu®, powered by Everfi, provides useful, research-based information to help Reinhardt students make healthy decisions while they are here at Reinhardt and to help them develop healthy lifestyle habits that will benefit them the rest of their lives.
AlcoholEdu®, incorporates the latest evidence-based prevention methods to create a highly personalized user experience that inspires students to reflect on and consider changing their drinking behaviors.
A federally funded, 30-campus randomized control trial found that AlcoholEdu reduces high-risk drinking and alcohol-related harms among college students. The program motivates behavior change by:
- Resetting unrealistic expectations about the effects of alcohol
- Linking choices about drinking to academic and personal success
- Helping students practice safer decision-making
- Engaging students to create a healthier campus community
