Alcohol Awareness

Alcohol Skills Training Program (ASTP) acknowledges the reality that college students may choose to drink. ASTP focuses on skill building and risk reduction rather than complete abstinence from alcohol, and recognizes that any steps towards risk reduction is a positive step. The goal of the program is to provide individuals with information about alcohol use and teach skills for avoiding, resisting, and setting limits on alcohol use. ASTP is delivered over a one hour and forty-five minute session. Upon special request this can be split into two 50 minute sessions to accommodate chapter meeting times.
