For most people who drink, alcohol is a pleasant accompaniment to social activities. Moderate alcohol use, up to two drinks per day for men and one drink per day for women and older people is not harmful for most adults. A standard drink is one 12-ounce bottle or can of either beer or wine cooler, one 5-ounce glass of wine, or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof distilled spirits (See the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) new website called "Rethinking Drinking"). However, several million adults engage in risky drinking that could lead to alcohol problems. These patterns include binge drinking and heavy drinking on a regular basis.
To learn more about your alcohol/other drug use patterns and behaviors, we have included links to the eCHECKUP TO GO programs (e-Chug and e-Toke) and the Alcohol/Sexual AssaultEdu course sponsored by the Dean of Students Office. The eCHECKUP TO GO programs are personalized, evidence-based, online prevention interventions for alcohol (e-Chug) and marijuana (e-Toke).
