CHOICES About Alcohol and Marijuana

The CHOICES about alcohol & marijuana program (CHOICES) engages students in self-reflection and discussion about facts, risks and norms associated with alcohol and marijuana. Additionally, students are equipped with the information, strategies and skills to make healthier decisions. In CHOICES, students are led by a facilitator through an interactive journaling session that provides critical normative, psychological and biological education about alcohol consumption and marijuana use, as well as strategies for harm reduction. Through the journaling process, students reflect upon the content, considering how alcohol or marijuana has or could touch their lives and how they might implement effective coping strategies to avoid abuse and harm in the future.

The CHOICES about alcohol & marijuana program is one hour and 30 minutes in length and limited to 10 students per class. A health educator from Student Health Promotion facilitates the class. All classes will be held at 75 Piedmont, Student Health Promotion, room 257. After the class, students will schedule a one-on-one session to meet with a health educator to complete the BASICS program.
