According to recent surveys*, 60% of adults aged 18 to 29 say they drink alcohol, a rate that rises to 71% among those aged 21 to 29. Yet many of these young adults have no measurable way of understanding how alcohol consumption affects their lives.
Green Peak Alliance is making it easier for young adults in Vermont to make informed decisions about their alcohol intake by offering the Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO scan to current and prospective students of Community College of Vermont, aged 17-26. eCHECKUP TO GO is an online scan that gives participants personalized, confidential feedback on their alcohol use based on a 30-minute survey. eCHECKUP TO GO shows people the risk factors and warning signs to know about Substance Use Disorder, helps them understand their limits, and provides resources to guide people on making healthy choices.
