College Student Drinking: Alcohol Intervention Strategies for Harmful and Underage Drinking

 

Course Description: This new resource is intended to help address harmful and underage student drinking. The CollegeAIM (Alcohol Intervention Matrix) guide was developed by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, part of the National Institutes of Health.

It is unique in the breadth of research covered by its analysis, and the number and expertise of its contributors.
