College high risk drinking: determinants and intervention opportunities

Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Hazardous drinking is highly prevalent in some college populations, making universities a long standing focus of substance use prevention efforts. This session presents recent findings that extend our understanding of hazardous drinking among college students by describing risky contexts, identifying correlates, investigating the effects of advertising, and presenting a novel assessment of drink-driving risk.
Session Objectives: Discuss the possible utility of subjective drunkenness for identifying college students at risk for drunk driving. Differentiate high-risk driving behaviors among alcohol-only users and those who combine alcohol with energy drinks. Describe patterns of football tailgating activities occurring on and around a college campus as a proxy for environmental influences of high-risk drinking. Identify populations that are particularly vulnerable to alcohol marketing messaging.
