            Collegiate Prevention Programming

Substance Use Disorder is a brain disease characterized by persistent drug-seeking and/or drug-taking behaviors, effecting a person's physical, social, emotional, and/or occupational aspects of a person's life (Shariatirad et al., 2013; Volkow et al., 2011).

 

Prevention programs strengthen protective factors prevention by addressing those most at risk with accurate information about alcohol and other drugs, articulate the potential consequences from their abuse, and offer activities unrelated to drinking or drugging. Below are examples of evidence based prevention for college campuses. To find the right program for your campus, check out SAMHSA's Resource Center, the Excellence in Prevention Strategy List, and the College AIM website.  

Prevention Network does not endorse the following programs. All programs should be evaluated for effectiveness and cost by the individual institution. This non-inclusive list only serves as a possible resource.

Brief Motivational Interviewing (BMI)

BMI emphasizes personal responsibility and self-efficacy of participants, offering them personalized feedback on their alcohol use, risks, expectancies, perceptions of social norms, and options for reducing problems and consequences. Discussions are guided by a trained facilitator. Goals for behavioral change are set by participants (College AIM, 2018). 

Collegiate Recovery Community/Program (CRC/CRP)

A collegiate Recovery Community/Program (CRC/CRP) is a supportive environment within the campus culture that reinforces the decision to disengage from addictive behavior. It is designed to provide an educational opportunity alongside recovery support to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other (ARHE, 2018).

Environmental Strategies

Environmental-level strategies aim to reduce underage and excessive drinking at the population level by changing the context (i.e., places, settings, occasions, and circumstances) in which alcohol use occurs, thereby reducing consequences (College AIM, 2018). For more information, join Michigan Coalition to Reduce Underage Drinking (MCRUD), check out your local coalitions, or set up a meeting with your State representative and area law enforcement.
